Exporting Hollywood Protectionism – A Hollywood Ambassador [Article]

The Electronic Frontier Foundation makes a case about why a “Hollywood Ambassador” is a bad idea.

An US Senator has introduced a bill in the US Senate to create a new position “Chief Innovation & Intellectual Property Negotiator”.

 The USTR has negotiated dozens of agreements and official publications with no true public consultation, upholding the one-sided concerns of Big Media and its allies. The U.S. copyright system is broken, yet we are exporting and reinforcing this broken system through these misguided treaties.

In other words, an Ambassador from Hollywood, paid for by the general public.
