#CRC12 – Three Updates

#CRC12logosmall As the title of the post says, this post has three updates about the work of the Copyright Review Committee. First, following a large number of requests for an extension of time to reply to the Committee’s Consultation Paper, the Committee has decided to extend the deadline for receipt of submissions to 5.00pm on Thursday 31 May 2012 (update: you can download a pdf of the Paper here (via DJEI) or here (from this site)). Second, the text to three of the questions on the first page of the Committee’s online questionnaire has been updated to confirm that certain information provided by respondents (such as postal address, email address, and website) will not be published.

Daithi O Ceallaigh, via IIEA siteThird, the Committee is delighted that Mr Dáithí O’Ceallaigh, Director General of the Institute of International and European Affairs and Chairman of the Press Council of Ireland, has agreed to chair the public meeting on the Paper. Mr O’Ceallaigh joined the Department of Foreign Affairs in 1973. He went on to assume posts in Moscow, London, Belfast and New York, before serving as Ambassador to Finland and Estonia (1993-1998), Ambassador to the United Kingdom (2001-2007), and Ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva (2007-2009), as well as the World Trade Organisation and the Conference on Disarmament in Geneva. In 2008, in Croke Park, he headed a small Irish team which negotiated the Convention to Prohibit Cluster Munitions which cause unacceptable harm to civilians.

The public meeting will be held next Saturday, 24 March 2012, from 10:00am until 12:00 noon, in the Robert Emmet Lecture Theatre, Room 2037 Arts Block (map here), Trinity College Dublin. The meeting will be divided into eight 15-minute question-and-answer segments, covering (i) the proposed Copyright Council; (ii) rights-holders; (iii) collecting societies; (iv) intermediaries; (v) users; (vi) entrepreneurs; (vii) heritage institutions; and (viii) fair use. Attendance is free and open to anyone interested in the work of the Committee, but registration is necessary. To register, you can

  • email the Review,
  • write to Copyright Review, Room 517, Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Kildare Street, Dublin 2, or
  • complete the Committee’s online questionnaire and answer the last question by confirming that you wish to attend the meeting.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Welcome

Me in a hatHi there! Thanks for dropping by. I'm Eoin O'Dell, and this is my blog: Cearta.ie - the Irish for rights.

"Cearta" really is the Irish word for rights, so the title provides a good sense of the scope of this blog.

In general, I write here about private law, free speech, and cyber law; and, in particular, I write about Irish law and education policy.

Blogroll (or, really, a non-blogroll)

What I'd like for here is a simple widget that takes the list of feeds from my existing RSS reader and displays it here as a blogroll. Nothing fancy. I'd love a recommendation, if you have one.

I had built a blogroll here on my Google Reader RSS subscriptions. Google Reader produced a line of html for each RSS subscription category, each of which I pasted here. So I had a list of my subscriptions as my blogroll, organised by category, which updated whenever I edited Google Reader. Easy peasy. However, with the sad and unnecessary demise of that product, so also went this blogroll. Please take a moment to mourn Google Reader. If there's an RSS reader which provides a line of html for the list of subscriptions, or for each RSS subscription category as Google Reader did, I'd happily use that. So, as I've already begged, I'd love a recommendation, if you have one.

Meanwhile, please bear with me until I find a new RSS+Blogroll solution

Thanks,

Eoin.
