WIPO and Broadcast "Protection"
For those following the broadcast flag issue-- or really anyone concerned about copy protection, public domain, DMCA, access to content, etc., this looks to be something that really needs some serious attention. Ernest Miller has pulled out some of the more disturbing passages of this proposed treaty-- which basically looks like the current Broadcast Flag proposals on steroids and with teeth. (I have only skimmed the treaty document thus far, though). Read Miller's analysis here: The Importance of...: The Broadcast Flag Treaty or read the treaty itself (PDF) here: Consolidated Text for a Treaty on the Protection of Broadcasting Organizations
