<nettime> cultural copyright vs cultural pirates [WAS Dark Markets]

Paving the way for the the CMCA -- the Cultural Milennium Copyright Act.
Striking fear in the hearts of cultural pirates everywhere.

"Counterfeit Italian restaurants":
I suppose these are churned out in some Chinese factory somewhere. I wonder
if they have a catalog....

[one more question: what if China wants royalties on their noodles?]

too bad Berlusconi doesn't want to do anything about the new version of
"Swept Away" that's coming out.....

Swept Away is rated R (Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult
guardian). There is a lot of swearing, a little nudity, a modicum of sex and
an eternity of staring at your watch.

Madonna stars in a soggy and superfluous English-language
remake of Lina Wertmüller's tart, schematic 1974 comedy
about class struggle and sexual combat on a deserted
Mediterranean island.

wood or assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for
the endless immensity of the sea."

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!
