Funny how there has been less and less talk of a new e-world order in the latter half of 2006. I wonder why? Have people just remembered that the law is your friend and creators have the right to their creation? The UK seems to have.
Copyright criminals must face far tougher regulation to protect the entertainment industry, a report says. The Gowers Report was commissioned by the government to look at modernising UK copyright laws for the digital age. While it proposes new powers against copyright infringement, it also says private users should be allowed to copy music from a CD to their MP3 player.Interestingly that the move away from e-legality is concurrent with the rise of YouTube and its interest in not being an outlaw, in actually ensuring copyright is respected. As the medium is apparently so compelling, does that make people better understand the underlying legal principles?
So will the brave new worlders hang out with the Y2Kers now? Oh, that's right. They are the same gurus.
