There have been no substantive comments on the draft IFSO response to the
Commission copyright consultation. As this needs list input, the response is
incomplete and cannot be sent. This is an important consultation that will
have its effects over the next years as the Commission makes proposals to
various directives. The alternative could be for IFSO to sign up to the EDRi
response (call for endorsement below), although the scope is wider
http://www.edri.org/campaigns/copyright. Should anyone else wish to complete
and submit the IFSO response (deadline 31.10.2004), I will keep the wiki
page in place until Monday.
