Engineering Steering Committee (FESCo) meeting log
for July 18
It's on this point that IP Czar Victoria Espinel should really be
ashamed. After talking up how this agreement would help someone (not clear
who?) "win the future,"
shouldn't she have been the least bit concerned
about the most obvious stakeholder who wasn't at the table? We see this way
too often with government officials these days. They think the only
stakeholders are the businesses, and leave out the citizens they're
supposed to represent
. Copyright law is supposed to benefit the public, but
the public wasn't at the table negotiating this agreement. In fact, pretty
much everyone admits that the government focused solely on bringing
together these two parties and putting tremendous pressure on the ISPs to
cave to the entertainment industry. Couldn't they have used some of that
"pressure" to make sure that the public's interest was included? Isn't that
what government is supposed
on the "six strikes" agreement
