New Copyright Law Database Effort by EFF

Posted in Politics by Chris on November 15, 2009

The Electronic Frontier Foundation just announced a new collaborative effort to collect and make transparent international copyright laws and related acts.   We do need public awareness for these issues now more than ever as horrifying details about the ACTA conspiracy against intellectual progress had leaked some days ago.  The global scale of the content industry’s attack on freedom is truly astonishing.  This dying industry and their proponents seem to be willing to drag the whole western society and culture into their grave.

The EFF’s project is a first important step in the right direction: we need to know the nature and range of the attack.  However, we do also need to know the names of the proponents. Which corporations are behind this conspiracy? Which lobbyists are mind-twisting our elected officials? They need to get the spotlight.
