Report from Broadcast Treaty meeting at USPTO

As mentioned in today's class, an inter-industry group opposed to the Broadcast Treaty attended a USPTO round-table on the US participation in the Treaty. Public Knowledge's Gigi Sohn has a great report on the session:

[NAB Senior Associate General Counsel Ben Ivins] then accused those of us who think that the US delegation should not be making US laws overseas of essentially being xenophobes who are pushing the US view of broadcasting and copyright on the rest of the world. Funny, I thought the US delegation usually pushing the US view of the world in trade and WIPO negotiations.
