APPEAL AGAINST GERMAN COMPUTER COPYRIGHT DECISION?

Vnunet.com reports that the recent German court decision placing a levy on computers since they are seen as copying devices has been met with a cool reception by the computing industry. The European IT and consumer electronics trade association EICTA has said that it will fight the decision, claiming that it creates a barrier to the internal market within the EU. It also warns of a forthcoming decision in Stuttgart, where the court is considering whether printers should be counted as copying devices.

The IPKat welcomes an appeal against this decision that seems to be detrimental to consumers on spurious grounds.

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',

Neil
