RE: En Australia CHOICE aboga por Uso Justo en nueva Ley de Derechos de Autor - Bravo

En Australia CHOICE aboga por Uso Justo en nueva Ley de Derechos de Autor El actual régimen de derechos de autor de Australia ha llevado a una situación donde uno de cada siete consumidores está activamente violando la ley sin siquiera saberlo, dice un nuevo estudio de la organización de consumidores CHOICE. CHOICE está abogando por la aplicación de una cláusula de "Uso Justo" (Fair Use) en la compra y en la distribución de contenidos digitales. La idea fue planteada durante una revisión realizada por la Comisión de Reforma de Ley Australiana de Derechos de Autor. Lee el artículo completo aquí:   Marcela OrtizComunicaciones /  Spanish Web EditorConsumers International |  la voz global de campaña por los derechos de los consumidores@CIESPANOL | Facebook: | nuestro aviso de confidencialidad del correo electrónico.

The idea was raised during the Australian Law Reform Commission review into Australia’s copyright laws.“Fair Use will allow consumers greater use of content they legally own, while at the same time protecting content producers and artists,” Mr Levey said.“America has a Fair Use system, and is one of the largest producers of copyrighted content in the world.”“Allegations that Fair Use will encourage piracy are ludicrous, and exhibit a fundamental misunderstanding of how a Fair Use system will work.”Source: SatyaRegional Project OfficerConsumers InternationalOffice of the Asia-Pacific and the Middle EastLot 5-1 Wisma WIM, 7 Jalan Abang Haji Openg, TTDI, 60000 Kuala Lumpur, MalaysiaTel: +60 3 7726 1599 Explore our new Resource Zone  - the global consumer movement knowledge hub | @Consumers_Int | | Read our email confidentiality notice.
