My lunchtime news browsing encountered the "Adelphi Charter":


It's discussed in the following articles:


The following is an excerpt from the Gaurdian article which might
be a useful point to apply when arguing against "the US has
such-and-such a IP law and is very successful, therefore the EU
should have the same law".

"The USA's database industry has flourished without a database right.
Indeed on most measures, it has outperformed the European database
industry. The same is true of the so-called "broadcaster's right," of
marginally shorter copyright terms and so on."
