US Copyright Lobby Out-of-Touch

Michael Geist, BBC News, Feb 23, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

In the latest report from a U.S. intellectual property lobby group, Michael geist notes, " what is most noteworthy about the IIPA effort is that dozens of countries - indeed most of the major global economies in the developed and developing world - are singled out for criticism." One wonders, he writes, who it is that is really out of step here. "Countries singled out for criticism should not be deceived into thinking that their laws are failing to meet an international standard, no matter what US lobby groups say." Quite so - and perhaps it's time for the rest of the world to tell this U.S. lobby to go back home and maybe rethink its position.
