RE: <nettime> Dark Markets: Whose Democracy?

Hey Ned, your proposal that entire cultures be copyrightable as racial
intellectual property is really starting to catch on!  With President
Berlusconi, no less!  Congratulations!


>From _The Economist_'s "Business This Week" e-mail newsletter, 10.10.02:

The Italian government announced a scheme to certify ITALIAN RESTAURANTS
around the world, ensuring genuine Italian menus served by Italians --
complete, presumably, with oversized pepper mills and checked table
cloths. Counterfeit Italian restaurants are thought to make profits of
some EURO27 billion ($26.6 billion) a year. A pilot scheme will be
launched in Belgium next year.
