WiPO- could be very bad for podcasters

This could be really REALLY bad for all of us podcasters out there! In a nutshell-

"If adopted, the WIPO treaty will give broadcasters 50 years of copyright-like control over the content of their broadcasts, even when they have no copyright in what they show. A TV channel broadcasting your Creative Commons-licensed movie could legally demand that no one record or redistribute it—and sue anyone who does. And TV companies could use their new rights to go after TiVo or MythTV for daring to let you skip advertisements or record programs in DRM-free formats."

I have been WAY out of the loop- I first heard about this through Michael and Evo's Wingin' It.
Pass it on and take action! Those of you out of the country- there are ways you can help, first and foremost by spreading the word around to all your American peeps!

Find out more and see what you can do to help!
