CES Fart Club aka The Slaptastic “Pro-Artist Copyright Policy Panel” features Anti-Copyright Advocates and Google Named Shills #2013CES

Not even kidding, just match the Anti-Copyright Google shills to the panelist list below. Talk about letting the fox guard the hen house. Wow, these are the same people who whine when not invited to trade organization and policy meetings like the TPP, but are so opposed to a balanced conversation they couldn’t actually invite a single artist rights representative! Ok, wow.

This is looking like a Silicon Valley Smug Alert, or otherwise known as Fart Club.

Beyond SOPA: Creating a Pro-innovation, Pro-artist Copyright Policy

Copyright policy – once an esoteric and legal backwater – now has a critical impact on our ability to work, play and communicate. In 2012, millions of Americans contacted their member of Congress to protest restrictive copyright proposals, while intellectual property issues took center stage in Washington and at the Presidential debates.

Join a group of entrepreneurs and DC policymakers as we discuss how to protect IP while maintaining a vibrant internet and creating new opportunities for content creators.

  2. I wanted to give this panel a chance, but it turned out to be even more lopsided than I imagined. It took nearly 40 minutes for any disagreement to arise and the disagreement was almost semantic in nature (regarding the “6 strikes” system). I’ve pretty much lost faith in copyright panel discussions altogether.

  3. It not just that these people’s efforts take money out of the hands of hard working musicians, filmmakers and game developers, its that they do it fraudulently as if they are campaigning for the public good rather than for their corporate funders, who are far wealthier than the industries they are helping to crush.
