Anti-Circumvention Clauses Are 'Hatred-Driven' Maoists

,----[ Quote ]
| Now, if you're at all familiar with the 
| Maoist Cultural Revolution, to compare that 
| to those who are simply pushing for their 
| own consumer rights on copyright issues or 
| asking for actual evidence of the need for 
| increasingly draconian copyright system 
| changes, is downright ridiculous and 
| insulting. No one is acting as a 
| revolutionary, demanding "free access" or 
| any sort of "Maoist" revolution. To make 
| such a claim is pure ignorance.

| I still can't comprehend arguments in favor 
| of allowing copyrights on facts. However, 
| over in Europe they do allow copyrighting of 
| facts if they're in a database, using so-
| called database rights.



British Music Industry Sees Piracy Threat Beyond P2P

,----[ Quote ]
| A new survey carried out on behalf of the
| BPI in the UK indicates that despite best
| efforts, P2P use is not in decline. As the
| industry continues to drag its feet when it
| comes to competing against other suppliers
| of music online, many consumers are
| branching out and turning to several
| alternative methods for acquiring their
| sounds.
