TPP Uncovered: WikiLeaks releases draft of highly-secretive multi-national trade deal http://rt.com/usa/wikileaks-tpp-ip-dotcom-670/ “Compared to existing multilateral agreements, the TPP IPR chapter proposes the granting of more patents, the creation of intellectual property rights on data, the extension of the terms of protection for patents and copyrights, expansions of right holder privileges and increases in the penalties for infringement,” James Love of Knowledge Ecology International explained after reading the leaked chapter. “The TPP text shrinks the space for exceptions in all types of intellectual property rights. Negotiated in secret, the proposed text is bad for access to knowledge, bad for access to medicine and profoundly bad for innovation.”
- - - U.N. should lauch a resolution that limits patents and copyrights, right holder privileges and penalties for infringement. - - - Let the inventors protect their media as much as they can without the help from public money! Let them try to invent media that can't be copied - or stay away from media that can be copied.
