Subject [DISCUSS] UK Enabling Bill For Copyright
Date Fri, 20 Nov 2009 18:49:23 GMT
the UK is likely to move an enabling bill for copyright. if this passes
(as seems likely), copyright law will no longer be fixed statue but
variable regulations changeable quickly, without consultation or
publicity by officials. it will therefore be no longer be possible for
any English committer to know the current state of UK copyright law
(there are additional enforcement measures so it's likely that the first
knowledge you'll have of a change in the law will be when the new
copyright enforcement officials gain forced entry to your abode).
retrospective changes will also be possible.

will any changes be required to the ICLA if this legislation passes?

i'm thinking in particular about retrospectively copyright changes. how
is a US court likely to react?
