Copyright and US stuff only US
« on: August 13, 2013, 11:11:07 pm »
For anyone that is interested in copyright stuff legal, and all that mumbo jumbo, a brand spanking new article attempting to clear everything up was just published. So people can read and be probably bored :) specifically do not forget to read the "green paper"

In the Green Paper, the IPTF proposes the following actions:
  • Establishing a multistakeholder dialogue on improving the operation of the notice and takedown system under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).
  • Soliciting public comment and convening roundtables on:
    • The legal framework for the creation of remixes;
    • The relevance and scope of the first sale doctrine in the digital environment;
    • The application of statutory damages in the context of individual file-sharers and secondary liability for large-scale online infringement;
    • The appropriate role for the government, if any, to help improve the online licensing environment, including access to comprehensive public and private databases of rights information.

Yes this is the part i was interested in.

Clearly they focus on something else but a remaking of a game could fall within that context. I need to read it in more detail i just glazed over it really quick. And yes this is very dry material so bring some water :) or better yet some coffee :P.
