TPP copyright term extension requirement (to *70 years post-mortem author) CONFIRMED

"Breaking News"  (i.e.; not really, just official confirmation of something already known)


it took me a while to find this;  the New Zealand government's TPP "information release" is the only one (in english at least) that isn't COMPLETELY bullshit-PR. in that they actually provide details of at least some of the more "unpalatable" aspects of the deal.  not just "hey it's all REALLY GOOD news!"  ^__^ - x__X

best article about the TPP i've seen, during the whole canadian election campaign; including coverage from the cbc, sadly.  

i'm not sure if, or to what degree, the generally poor-quality reporting is due to ignorance, vs wilful "shaping" of the story...
Negotiations aimed at concluding the Trans Pacific Partnership are underway in Atlanta with plenty of signs that the various countries are prepared to compromise in order to reach a deal when the ministers (including Canadian International Trade Minister Ed Fast) arrive toward the end of the week. Canada has already caved on most intellectual property issues (copyright term, etc.) and Prime Minister Harper recently signaled Canada's willingness t...

NOTE:  At the moment, i seem to have hit some obscure (i.e.: undocumented) "limit" in the number of people that I can circle on G+; until that gets sorted out, I am unable to circle, or even "circle-back" people who have circled me (which has been my usual practice).  S
