In September 1996, the folks at here at EFGA became concerned enough about how Copyright and trademark issues were being used on the Internet to start this section of our web pages on Intellectual Propery (IP) issues. While this form of "censorship" from corporate backers has been going on for awhile, it was the specific issue with the Software Publisher's Association (SPA) that concerned us most. For months we have worked on this issue in an attempt to balance the needs of Copyright Holders, Users, and ISPs.
We are proud to announce that by working with a broad range of organizations across the U.S., we are organizing the first Copyright Enforcement Summit. It is in everyone's best interest to have cooperation. And cooperation can only come through communication.
Other information on Copyright issues with the SPA and other organizations can be found here
