The Broadcast Treaty

Public Knowledge reports on The Broadcast Treaty, Copyfraud & Tech Neutrality:

Imagine if you wanted to license a use of part of a book, and to do so you needed the permission, not only of the author, but of the store you bought the book from. This would be unfair to authors as well as you. This is what some broadcasters want in the broadcast treaty–not just a narrow protection against the wholesale retransmission of their signals (which broadcasters in the U.S. already have), but a claim on the downstream uses of content they have broadcast.
