[News] China and ACTA; Temporary Defeat of Anti-Internet Laws

Hash: SHA1

China and ACTA: Why Is The Problem Not Made Part Of The Solution?

,----[ Quote ]
| Section 2. Border Measures:
| Under discussion is whether border measures should apply not only to 
| importations (as TRIPs prescribes) but also to export and transit of goods; 
| Another possible point of contention is whether travelers can import 
| counterfeit or pirated goods for their personal use (de minimis exception); 
| It is no surprise that ACTA tries to solve some of the points, which 
| especially has frustrated the US (which among other reasons brought a claim 
| against China at the WTO: DS 362): measures to ensure that infringing goods 
| are not released into free circulation and the destruction of goods that have 
| been determined to infringe intellectual property rights.    


A little bit of good news from France

,----[ Quote ]
| In Spain, as in France, Italy and all over Europe, local "artists" are very 
| active on the anti-freedom of downloading campaign, attributing the bad 
| economic performances of the European (respectively, Spanish, French, ...) 
| movie industry to the use of P2P software and downloading. As everyone knows, 
| before P2P appeared the European movie industries were thriving and their 
| movies were dominanting the world market.     



Political Hypocrisy: French President Sued for Copyright Infringement

,----[ Quote ]
| This may very well become the most ironic stories of 2009 in the copyright
| debate. The CBC is reporting that French president Nicolas Sarkozy has been
| sued by an independent band for copyright infringement.


Is Nicholas Sarkozy One Strike Towards Losing His Internet Connection?

,----[ Quote ]
| The latest is that French President, Nicholas Sarkozy, a big supporter of
| setting up a three strikes law in France, is being accused of violating
| copyright law himself.


British Government Violates Copyright

,----[ Quote ]
| As much as I utterly despise the entire premise of Intellectual Monopoly,
| this is about violating the principles of a Free License, and if it's good
| enough for the British government to violate our civil rights in the name of
| Intellectual Monopoly, then it's good enough for the Free World to protect
| its "property" (in fact Freedom) too…


UK government stole website theme

,----[ Quote ]
| NUMBER 10, the UK Prime Minister's website, is apparently built using a
| design it nicked.
