Before I get back to work, here’s a collection of IP-related links from the past week.
First, the good news:
White House sides with disability rights in WIPO negotiations. Yippee!
Feeling good? Excellent. Lets crush those warm fuzzies with the rest of the links:
New Zealand reintroduces Three Strikes! It’s still awful!
Capitol Records/EMI filed suit against Vimeo for really delightful “Flagpole Sitta” lip-dub viedo.
North Face filing suit against “The South Butt,” a parody clothing company created and run by an 18 year old college kid.
A Vancouver art gallery has been ordered to remove an “anti-Olympics” mural from its front wall.
And, finally, the owner of a record store in Ottawa plead guilty to violating Canadian copyright law when he sold rare and import recordings not licensed for sale in Canada.
