Unbelievably, someone in power recently gave a speech titled “A Digital World of Opportunities” that is in favor of copyright reform.  Who, you might ask?  Ms. Neelie Kroes, the European Commission Vice-President for the Digital Agenda.

I’d provide some details concerning the speech, but Thom Holwerda at OS News has already provided an outstanding review of her speech here.   It’s definitely a MUST READ!

The speech in its entirety can be found here, and I’ve posted a PDF copy here.

If only this speech could be the seed for an intelligent debate concerning the farce copyright law has become in the US (& elsewhere)… but I won’t set my hopes too high yet.
