WIPO Broadcasting Treaty Talks Sent Back To Committee

An IPWatch article by William New includes:

World Intellectual Property Organization members on Friday recommended to move talks on a proposed broadcasters’ and cablecasters’ treaty back to committee level for further consideration, a day after rejecting a proposal to elevate the issue to formal treaty negotiations. The move could signify a shelving of the issue, some nine years after discussions first began.
