Broadcast Flag, SupersizedEmail This EntryPrint This Entry
Posted by Donna Wentworth

Two essential posts on the WIPO Treaty for the Protection of Broadcasting Organizations (PDF), a form of broadcast flag Writ Large that threatens to remove many of the public's rights under the copyright laws of most countries in the world:

WIPO Considering a Ban on Computers: "[This] provision, if adopted, would apparently require signatories to the treaty to ban the importation, sale or distribution of computers" [Edward Felten @ Freedom-to-Tinker].

The Broadcast Flag Treaty - Draft Available: "No more VCR, DVD-R or TiVo for you. So much for time shifting. Goodbye Sony v. Universal, it was nice knowing you" [Co-Copyfighter Ernest Miller @ home].
