Electronic Frontier Foundation’s new Copyright Watch

Copyright Watch is especially important to bloggers/journalists. Drop by. Stay informed. Lend a hand if you can, to help EFF keep apace of governmental and private copyright action:

It’s a real challenge to map all of these laws, and all of these changes. But it’s vital that we do so. Every shift in any of those countries might spread: whether it’s for good or ill, maximalist or reforming. Lawmakers eagerly look for track records in other nations, or are obliged to adopt another’s bad laws through treaty or trade agreement. Japan decides to model their new law’s exceptions on the United State’s broad fair use principles; politicians see France’s three strikes laws, and decide to import them wholesale. We’re hoping Copyright Watch will give the public as powerful a tool for monitoring the global copyright outlook as any private interest.
