More on WIPO SCCR - "Do as we say, not as we do..."

Here's the KEI report.

Here's IP-Watch.

In a nutshell, the Broadcasters' Rights proposed treaty isn't dead yet...

And the attempt by Chile and others to promote a meaningful initiative on clarifying norms on limitations and exceptions is being opposed by the usual vested interests who are saying, in effect, "do as we say, not as we do."

  1. Hi, I found your blog by googling on copyright. I find your positions to be reasonable although I personally am much more inclined toward Public Domain.
    Anyway , I would like to invite you to submit a paper to Communia workshop in Vlinius , Lithuania o March 31
    http://communia-project.eu/about called “Ethical Public Domain: Debate of Questionable Practices”. Communia will possibly have a significant impact on EU policy toward copyright policies.
    Please, send us one-page position papers in the Public Domain that we might present on your behalf as we are organizing debates! See: http://www.ethicalpublicdomain.org/wiki.cgi?CommuniaWorkshop
    Thank you!
    Kind Regards, Sasha Mrkailo
