WIPO Broadcasting Treaty

Lobbying on an International Scale

The WIPO Broadcasting treaty in its original form is a threat not only to the rights of creative people around the world but to the core understanding of the internet.

The Broadcasting Treaty within the WIPO originally intended to prohibit so-called "signal piracy". Instead it proposed a whole new form of copyright as an envelope around the existing forms. Together with a very light definition of "Webcasting" this could possibly change the way people work and publish on the internet. Currently civil society organizations from all over the world are joining large telecommunications corporations in a joint struggle against this treaty.

A talk not only about a very bad treaty but also about successful lobbying on an international level.
