Vanessa Hudgens Claims Copyright in DÃcolletÃe Images of Herself

,----[ Quote ]
| Generally speaking, the subject of a 
| photograph does not have copyrights 
| therein. These accrue to the photographer, 
| unless there is a contract to the 
| contrary.
| Actress Vanessa Hudgens has apparently 
| been shocked to find full frontal, nude 
| images of herself on the Internet, 
| specifically on the site of 
| moejackson.com, but as tends to happen 
| with such things, the images are already 
| available more widely.


Senator Demands IP Treaty Details

,----[ Quote ]
| That a U.S. senator must ask a federal 
| agency to share information regarding a 
| proposed and âclassifiedâ international 
| anti-counterfeiting accord the government 
| has already disclosed is alarming. 
| Especially when the info has been given to 
| Hollywood, the recording industry, 
| software makers and even some digital-
| rights groups.


TransLink's new copyright deal means fee hike for buskers 

,----[ Quote ]
| Buskers at SkyTrain stations in Vancouver 
| are about to get an Olympic-sized price 
| hike as TransLink negotiates a deal with 
| the Society of Composers, Music Publishers 
| and Authors of Canada - the Canadian body 
| that collects licensing fees on 
| copyrighted music.
| The arrangement, set to be finalized by 
| Feb. 1, will cost the transit service $880 
| per station per year and the hefty price 
| hike will almost certainly result in 
| higher licensing fees for buskers. Right 
| now, TransLink buskers pay an annual 
| licence fee of $75.



First 2010 Google D.C. Talk on ACTA: the global treaty that could reshape the Internet

,----[ Quote ]
| The panel will tackle important questions
| like:  Will ACTA preserve the existing
| balance in intellectual property laws,
| providing not just enforcement for
| copyright holders but also appropriate
| exceptions for technology creators and
| users? Will it undermine the legal safe
| harbors that have allowed virtually every
| Internet service to come into existence?
| And will it encourage governments to
| endorse "three strikes" penalties that
| would take away a user's access to the
| Internet?


UK Gov't On ACTA: Lack of Transparency Not In the Public Interest

,----[ Quote ]
| The UK Government discusses the lack of
| transparency in an EU access to
| information request:
| "More broadly with respect to ACTA the UK
| considers that transparency is crucial to
| ensure the legitimacy of the agreement and
| to stop the spread of rumours. We believe
| the lack of transparency is unhelpful and
| do not believe that it is in the public
| interest."


Marshall interview on ACTA with the Commission

,----[ Quote ]
| An unnamed official from the Commission
| responds to good and deep ACTA questions
| from journalist Rosalie Marshall.
| They say the secrecy of the mandate of the
| EU-Commission is crucial:
|     We canât make the mandate public
|     because it defines the limits of where
|     the EU is prepared to go with the
|     agreement. If it is made public and
|     other countries gained access to it
|     they would know how far we will go or
|     not go with the negotiations. This
|     could make their tasks a lot easier.
|     Itâs like if you are buying a used car
|     and you already know how low the
|     seller will go with the price.


DOJ Recommends FCC Quickly Free up More Spectrum

,----[ Quote ]
| Supporting existing and new wireless
| broadband providers is key to encouraging
| broadband competition, the U.S. Department
| of Justice advised the U.S. Federal
| Communications Commission on Monday.
| In a filing submitted in response to an
| FCC request for comments on its national
| broadband plan, the DOJ said that it's
| unrealistic to try to promote "textbook
| markets of perfect competition" since the
| provision of broadband services is so
| costly. "Rather, promoting competition is
| likely to take the form of enabling
| additional entry and expansion by wireless
| broadband providers," among other
| activities, the DOJ wrote.


And the draft of the ACTA reply to me in English

,----[ Quote ]
| So here is a Council draft document in
| English to the reply to my secondary
| request for document access related to an
| ACTA criminal provisions document.


ACTA secondary application answered

,----[ Quote ]
| Formally, I could go to Court now or
| invoke the ombudsman.
