CPSR Opposes WIPO Broadcast Treaty Proposal

CPSR Signs Consumer Project on Technology Letter to Congress Opposing WIPO Broadcast Treaty Proposal and requesting formal comments.
On October 13, CPSR was one of 17 civil society non-government organizations, 7 law  professors, and 31 musicians and technology experts to send a letter to  leaders of the US Senate and House of Representatives  expressing  opposition to proposals at  the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) to create a new intellectual property  right for broadcasting and webcasting organizations.  The letter asked Congress to insist that the Bush Administration accept formal comments from the public before a decision is reached on whether or not to  hold a diplomatic conference that would create a new global treaty at WIPO.
