Gallo report on future EU copyright: No compromise on our Freedoms!

,----[ Quote ]
| A few hours before the vote on the Gallo 
| report regarding the future of EU 
| copyright, the rapporteur, French sarkozyst 
| Marielle Gallo, has tried to lead her 
| colleagues into voting fake compromise 
| amendments. Mrs Gallo tries to hide the 
| clash between two very conflicting 
| positions: on one hand, the rapporteur's 
| ultra-repressive logic against online 
| filesharing - including the encouragement 
| of the ACTA agreement and of private 
| copyright police - and on the other hand, 
| the understanding that a successful 
| creative economy will be built with 
| Internet users and not against them. It's 
| up to us, citizens, to help the members of 
| the JURI committee to make the right 
| decision by protecting fundamental freedoms 
| and the public interest.


Digital Economy Act will fail

,----[ Quote ]
| A survey from law firm Wiggin and 
| Entertainment Media Research asked 1,592 
| UK consumers aged 15-54 if they thought the 
| law change would mean anything to them. A 
| third of those who admitted to downloading 
| the odd file said that they would not 
| change their behaviour even if the most 
| direct action of Internet account 
| "suspension" is implemented under the DEA. 
| However they might change their minds when 
| they have their Internet access cut off.


Digital Economy Act will not be repealed

US Copyright Official Discounts ACTA Concerns

,----[ Quote ]
| U.S. copyright official Steven Tepp said
| Tuesday he doesn't understand many of the
| current objections to the proposed Anti-
| Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), a 37-
| nation effort to enforce copyright and
| counterfeit laws across international
| borders.
| Tepp, senior counsel for policy and
| international affairs at the U.S. Copyright
| Office, dismissed objections to ACTA voiced
| by representatives of the Consumer
| Electronics Association (CEA) and Knowledge
| Ecology International (KEI), an
| intellectual-property research and advocacy
| group, during a debate on the trade
| agreement at the Future of Music Coalition's
| Washington, D.C., policy forum.
