Missing From The Table Again: Consumers Left Out Of Australian Meetings On Copyright
from the the-public?-who-cares dept
It looks like the same thing is happening down under, where the government, the entertainment industry and the telcos are meeting without any representative for the public benefit being involved... and, on top of that, the government seems to be bending over backwards not to say what's being discussed in those meetings. This is pretty horrific, considering that the stated purpose of copyright law is to benefit the public by means of providing monopolies to the creators. Thus, the key party in these meetings should be representatives of the public interest, rather than the monopoly recipients.
