"The UN Special Rapporteur in the field of cultural rights, Farida
Shaheed, has just delivered a less-than-complimentary report on
copyright to the UN's Human Rights Council. Shaheed's report actually
examines where copyright meshes with arts and science -- the two areas
it's supposed to support -- and finds it runs contrary to the rosy image
of incentivized creation perpetuated by the MPAAs and RIAAs of the world."

Strong copyright can harm culture more than it helps.

Share and enjoy,
