Google, Microsoft and Facebook have all recently pushed legislation to push through a new copyright law, the Copyright Term Extension (CTEA).
This is a significant change for copyright holders and many believe it will lead to a massive increase in piracy and copyright infringement.
The legislation is now set to be debated in the Senate, which is expected to pass the bill into law.
However, some have criticised the proposed legislation, claiming that the government has been too soft on copyright holders.
In a recent interview with the Daily Mail, Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL) stated that the CTEA would result in a “federal bureaucracy of death”, a sentiment echoed by others in the media and technology community.
He also suggested that the proposed CTEAs powers could be extended further, by requiring ISPs to make the content of their users’ online content available to search engines, or even making it mandatory for search engines to allow users to share the content online.
Senator Durben stated that if the government was to act on the CTAAs, it would be necessary to create a “three-tiered system” where the content owners would be able to choose which search engine they want to be able search for.
He added that such a system would be “completely impractical”, and “a lot of people are afraid”.
“If we get the government to go along with this, they’re going to have to create the three-tierent system,” Senator Durber stated.
Senator Dick Durbine said the CTTAs proposed copyright powers could result in “a massive increase” in copyright infringement and piracy.
“It’s not a great bill, but it is an effective bill,” Senator Dick said.
Senator Richard is not the only one to speak out against the proposed copyright extension, as the New York Times recently published an op-ed by several of the country’s leading copyright lawyers, arguing that the law could have disastrous consequences for the internet as a whole.
One of the leading lawyers representing the movie studios in the case, Seth Abramson, told The Times that the legislation could be “unnecessary and harmful”, as it could “result in more cases being filed in the courts.”
The op-er stated that “the copyright term extension legislation is bad, bad for the economy and bad for society”.
The US Chamber of Commerce also issued a statement in support of the legislation, stating that the extension would “lead to a new era of copyrights that would have unintended consequences.”
The US Government has also expressed support for the legislation.
US President Barack Obama stated on Twitter that he is “supporting the Copyright Extension Act, and the President’s strong opposition to the TPP.”
The President’s support of this legislation is a welcome move, as it shows that President Obama’s stated policy is one that does not represent his views on the internet.
It is also a good sign for future efforts to pass copyright extension legislation in the US.
However the lack of strong opposition from major tech companies has caused many to doubt that the new copyright laws will have a significant impact on the industry.
If the CTPP is approved, it will likely result in the creation of new copyright-related laws in the future.
In the meantime, copyright holders have reacted to the new laws by introducing new bills to extend their existing rights and to push for stricter rules for search engine results.
For example, the US House of Representatives passed a bill to extend copyright holders’ existing rights to search the internet, and a bill that would force search engines that do not comply with copyright laws to pay copyright holders for the search results they provide.
If this legislation passes the US Senate, the copyright extension law could also be extended to cover the entire internet.
The US House is also expected to vote on the US President’s signature domestic copyright bill, which includes a copyright extension.
However it remains to be seen if the US Congress will agree to any copyright extension measures in the coming months.
The European Parliament has also introduced a new law to protect copyright holders, including a new Copyright Term extension (CTTE).
This legislation would also include copyright owners’ rights to access the internet and search the web.
If passed, the CETA could lead to the creation a new legal framework for copyright and copyright related matters that would make it much easier for people to access online content, including search engines.
The Copyright Term Extensions Act of 2015 is a joint effort between the European Parliament, the European Commission, and US legislators.
It was introduced by MEPs from Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the UK, and Sweden.
The bill is expected later this month, and will then be voted on in the European Council and European Parliament.
In 2018, the House of Lords passed a copyright bill that includes copyright extensions, as well as a number of other copyright-relevant measures.
In 2019, the United States House of Congress passed a resolution that would extend copyright rights for internet users and internet search providers.
This new bill will also include
