Funny How Those In Favor Of ACTA Are Against Treaty Providing More Access To Content For Vision Impaired

,----[ Quote ]
| Now, that's funny, because you could pretty much 
| say that ACTA is doing the same thing... and yet 
| these same groups are strongly in favor of ACTA, 
| which would also be at odds with existing, 
| longstanding and well-settled norms." Funny how 
| their view changes completely when discussing 
| treaties that would beef up copyright law vs. those 
| that would create important and useful loopholes in 
| it.



We See Your 'Copyright Contributes $1.5 Trillion' And
Raise You 'Fair Use Contributes $2.2 Trillion'

| The copyright industry lobbyists absolutely
| love to throw around the bogus and debunked
| stat that copyright contributes $1.52
| trillion to the economy. That number is
| derived by taking any business that kinda
| sorta maybe touches copyright (including
| things like furniture and jewelry) and then
| assuming that all of the revenue they make
| is entirely due to copyright. Yes, that's
| ridiculous. But, if the copyright lobbyists
| are going to use such bogus methodology to
| push their agenda, it seems only fair for
| those on the other side to use the same
| methodology. Last week, we wrote about a
| biased editorial by two newspaper industry
| lawyers in the WSJ (who failed to note the
| conflicts of interest), claiming that
| Google violated copyright law, and attacked
| the concept of fair use.
