This is a very worrying development. Borders are places with arbitrary rules, over-empowered and unaccountable officers and no recourse for victims. It is simply wrong to give open-ended powers regarding arguable and intangible "infringements" to these people.

It will come as no surprise to anyone reading here regularly, but there may be some that still don't realise their political "representatives" have so little grasp of the dynamics of copyright and patent laws that they are willing to trade your cultural inheritance for short-term political advantage.

"Listening to the "special interests" who worry about freedom of speech and breaking the Internet? Well, that makes you just as much a criminal as they are." -- Don Henley of The Eagles really does need to think more deeply about this and recognise that the 20 century's music business winners are the problem, not the solution.

I think I'd agree with Jay but phrase things differently. The benefits of open source are all the first derivatives of software freedom. As the market stabilises, we are seeing two effects. The first is businesses valuing those first derivatives as a function of the freedoms that cause them. The second is a shift in marketing to talk about those derived benefits, but usually somehow in the context of their cause. I believe we will actually see more, no less marketing of open source benefits; it's just that it might not mention their origins.

USTR continues its covert mission to extend copyright and its control ever wider without any reference to the protection of culture or citizens. Giving corporations more unassailable rights is so obviously a problem that it's no wonder they want this legislative gerrymandering kept secret.
A very happy 4th to all my friends in the USA. A great way to celebrate is to go consider this timely Move To Amend campaign, aimed at creating a new Amendment to the US Constitution that clarifies that corporations are not people and thus are not entitled to engage in politics nor to assume the privileges of individuals. Both are happening today essentially without the consequences of the associated responsibilities that real people face in exercising those same privileges. Go take a look now, then celebrate your independence at that BBQ later and consider the issues as you do.
