    Website accusing of corruption, more dangerous than a mass murder?

    | That's how the legal system in New Zealand judged it. Refusing to take down
    | the website could send you to jail indefinitely, because refusing to comply
    | with such a court order is probably as offending as a serial murder, right?

    Digital copyright: it's all wrong

    | The ACTA draft is a scary document. If a treaty based on its provisions were
    | adopted, it would enable any border guard, in any treaty country, to check
    | any electronic device for any content that they suspect infringes copyright
    | laws. They need no proof, only suspicion.
    |
    | They would be able to seize any device - laptop, iPod, DVD recorder, mobile
    | phone, etc - and confiscate it or destroy anything on it, merely on
    | suspicion. On the spot, no lawyers, no right of appeal, no nothing.

    | Canadian law expert David Fewer, staff counsel at the University of Ottawa’s
    | Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic, told the Ottawa Citizen
    | that the discussion paper was very close to a potential Christmas wish-list
    | by Hollywood companies.
    |
    | Knowledge Ecology International (KEI), in an earlier statement filed to USTR,
    | warned against a lack in differentiation and clearness of core terms, like
    | counterfeiting, infringement or piracy. “Is Microsoft a “pirate” for
    | insisting on the right to continue to infringe the z4 patents in order to use
    | an infringing DRM technology to protect Microsoft software itself from
    | infringement by unauthorised uses?” KEI asked in its statement.
