UK Government Censors Copyright Consultation Submission About Awful Collecting Societies
UK Government Censors Copyright Consultation Submission About How Awful Collection Societies Are | Techdirt: "the first link above is to Techdirt, and the others are to sites like the BBC, El Pais, Die Welt and TorrentFreak. None of them is defamatory, since they are all reporting on established facts. This means that the UK government must think that these facts are somehow "inappropriate". That's a pretty extraordinary state of affairs. The UK government has taken it upon itself to hide what UK collection societies get up to, in an absolutely key consultation, one of whose purposes is surely to get the facts about what's happening in this sector."
