UN Steamrolls Member States and Insists on Controversial Broadcast Treaty

A BloggerNews article by Deek Deekster includes:

The 2004 proposal for a “Development Agenda at WIPO” designed to reform WIPO’s practice of favoring special interests and creating new IP rights that harm the public interest was prevented from moving forward in 2005 based on the objection of only two Member States, the US and Japan. In an inexplicable stark contrast, numerous Member States’ objections to Liedes’ proposal for a Broadcasting Treaty have been ignored and Liedes continues to steamroll Member States into accepting his treaty.
