Madkat Posted October 11, 2006 Share Posted October 11, 2006 UN to Podcasters: Shut up! A new broadcast treaty being pursued by the Unated Nations World Intellectual Property Rights Association could put a nail in podcastingâ€™s coffin and bury your existing rights along with it. The treaty expands the existing international broadcast treaty, which hitherto convered only traditional media, to include the web. It would extend DRM restrictions to everything from podcasts and YouTube videos to blog ports. By making it illegal for podcasters and other content creators to aggregate and mirror content online, whether itâ€™s copyright or not, the new treaty could spell certain doom for podcasting as we know it. Hurry up and start your vidcastsâ€¦ and technically, if this passes so much for everything good on the internet!
