Re: Against DRM 2.0

Ok, you don't know related rights.


Related rights are the rights that belong to the performers, the producers of phonograms and broadcasting organizations in relation to their performances, phonograms and broadcasts respectively.

Related rights don't concern software!

There isn't a lawyer in this comunity: this is a problem, imho.



Software is not music. Software is not visual art.
Software is a code, a literary work (and Berna Convention consider software as a literary work).
So software patents are unlogicall.

Yes it does. Software producers and executives have those rights as well.

Art is not that different from software really - wine is different
from water, it has a different chemical structure and wine reduced to
water is no longer wine. Art can take many forms including software.
