Europe To Adopt Strict Internet Copyright Law
4/11/2001; 12:12:04 PM Details at the EU's site. I haven't gone over it with a fine-toothed comb (it would take a couple of days anyhow), but my intuitive take on it seems to be that they trumped the DMCA, tipping the so-called "balance" even further in favor of the content producers. It seems the idea that intellectual property exists for the purposes of improving society, not lining corporate pockets, is now an anachronistic idea to be paid lip service only.
