Always remember the 317 MEPs who voted against giving democracy a chance.
La bozza di D.Lgs. #copyright è carta straccia, incostituzionale per eccesso di delega. Perché violare la direttiva e causare decenni di contenzioso? Cui prodest? Piuttosto meglio non fare niente.
Chissà se @dariofrance ricorda com'è andata a finire colla direttiva Barnier.
BOOOM! Nel parere reso su decreto recepimento direttiva #Copyright @antitrust_it dice che norma eccede limiti delega e testo della dirett…
A spectre is haunting Europe — the spectre of cheap books. 🧐
I can't tell whether UK publishers were serious, but the reality of #copyright post #Brexit is duller.
Ok, «it's not just words, it's not a speech; it's a commitment of the entire Governing Council with delivery time, deliverables and pursuit of objectives [...] we take that very seriously – and action has already started.»
RIP #Hakaniemenranta trees.
(Context from the city of #Helsinki on plans for #Merihaka within the project for Kruunusillat and Hakaniemensilta: https://www.hel.fi/uutiset/en/kaupunginkanslia/new-detailed-plan-approved-for-hakaniemenranta .)
People talk as if 750 G€ or 200 G€ were a lot of money to splurge, but it's peanuts, even if spent 100 % on a couple #climatechange priorities. Per IEA, investments need to double.
Fra #PNRR https://www.governo.it/it/articolo/pnrr/16718 e contributi parlamentari http://senato.it/leg/18/BGT/Schede/docnonleg/41806.htm ha vinto l'inerzia. Per il clima solo parole vuote e obiettivi 8 volte inferiori al bisogno, ben detto Confindustria/Elettricità futura (!).
Understatement of the year: «We have no reason to believe that the Copyright Act seeks to protect third parties' investment in learning how to operate a created work.»
«In our view, for the reasons just described, the declaring code is, if copyrightable at all, further than are most computer programs (such as the implementing code) from the core of copyright.»
I stress "If copyrightable at all".
Last week #Microsoft discovered that monopolies are bad, competition good. It immediately proceeded to suggest that the USA expand monopolies further, "copy" the restrictive #copyright -related regimes.
I just finished my usual membership fees spree of January... hopefully this time I didn't forget any.
With the last USA org finally switched to a SEPA bank transfer, only 3 remain for later: one which uses SDD and a couple associations which prefer a Finnish bank transfer (with a reference code produced at some point during the year).
I had a good year so I added 2 more orgs. This year I might go over 20, depending how you count. O_o #nt
