Podcasters, Help Stop the Broadcasting Treaty!

If adopted, the WIPO Broadcasting Treaty would lockdown your digital media devices and grant to broadcasters and cablecasters broad new IP-like rights over anything they transmit. That's bad enough, but some countries at WIPO have also supported expanding the treaty to cover various Internet transmissions.

While many prominent webcasters have already spoken out about the treaty, podcasters also should make their voices heard. If you're a podcaster, read this joint statement to WIPO opposing the treaty and write to podcastersandwipo@eff.org to sign on.
