Little public broadcast of dangerous broadcast treaty

Michael Geist"Over the next month, U.S. and Canadian broadcasters will unveil a slate of new television programs, hopeful that a handful will emerge as the next Desperate Housewives, Seinfeld, or American Idol. Programs that fail to quickly find an audience, face the prospect of cancellation. In this regard, the broadcast industry clearly understands the need to cut its losses by putting an end to programs that are not working. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for those negotiating the unnecessary and potentially harmful WIPO Broadcast Treaty." —Michael Geist (via A2K)
