CPTech reaction on WIPO Broadcasting Treaty Decision

2 October 2006

James Love (CPTech), "The WIPO General Assembly corrected a mistake made two weeks ago. The decision recognized that no one was ready for a Diplomatic Conference at this point. It shows that there are some problems with the way the SCCR is run. Hopefully, the WIPO leadership will get the hint."

Thiru Balasubramaniam (CPTech), "CPTech welcomes the Decision of the WIPO General Assembly to pursue a signal-based approach in this Treaty in lieu of granting dangerous new entitlements to broadcasters. As we made clear to the WIPO General Assembly, convening a Diplomatic Conference at this stage would have been premature."
