What Does Copyright Have to Do With "Free Trade"? Unpicking the Undemocratic Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership

What Does Copyright Have to Do With "Free Trade"? Unpicking the Undemocratic Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership | Technologies numériques & Education | Scoop.it
Democracy makes the job of our trade negotiators much harder. The light of democratic oversight makes it difficult for them to pander to the incessant demands of industry lobbyists, while ignoring the broader public interest. And the transparency that is central to democratic systems of governments impedes their efforts to hide what they are doing behind closed doors.

Why the FCC Can't Actually Save Net Neutrality

Why the FCC Can't Actually Save Net Neutrality | Technologies numériques & Education | Scoop.it
Network neutrality—the idea that Internet service providers (ISPs) should treat all data that travels over their networks equally—is a principle that EFF strongly supports. However, the power to enforce equal treatment on the Internet can easily become the power to control the Internet in less beneficent ways.

Secretive Copyright Negotiations Continue at the 16th Round of TPP Talks

Secretive Copyright Negotiations Continue at the 16th Round of TPP Talks | Technologies numériques & Education | Scoop.it

"The 16th round of negotiations over the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement (TPP) began in Singapore on March 4, 2013, as trade delegates and private stakeholders from 11 participating countries gather to discuss this the contours of Pacific trade. EFF and many others are deeply concerned about TPP, because it appears to contain an intellectual property (IP) chapter that would ratchet up IP enforcement at the expense of digital rights. The TPP could turn Internet Service Providers into copyright cops, prompt ever-higher criminal and civil penalties for sharing content, and expand protections for Digital Rights Management. The Office of the US Trade Representative (USTR) has announced that they plan to complete the TPP by the fall of this year."
