Submission + - New Broadcast treaty WIPO (

An anonymous reader writes: It seems the nasty "Broadcast Treaty" is rearing its head again in the WIPO talks. This would give a new copyright to what is uncopyrighted or out of copyright material to anyone who 'broadcasts" the material. It essentially re-ups the copyright..but Not to the original copyrights holder....but to the broadcaster....without any contract to the original holder.
