Now Is the Time for All Good Men...
John Naughton of The Observer (hyperlink, mine):
"All that is required for evil to triumph," wrote Edmund Burke, "is for good men to do nothing." His words came to mind last week as I read the daily reports from Geneva about the meeting of the standing committee on copyright and related rights of the (WIPO). The meeting was assembled to discuss a draft treaty to "protect" broadcasters and broadcasting signals.
For "protect" read "unprecedented, restrictive and anti-social powers."
Extra: In case you missed it, here's a brief report on the outcome of the WIPO meeting
from last week's EFFector newsletter.
