Dangerous_Minds (1869682) writes "On the heals of reports saying that Canada and Europe are close to finishing the negotiations of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), a recently published study says that anti-circumvention rules for TPMs "excessively favours the content industries". The study examined laws in the US and Europe and reviewed several cases revolving around TPMs. It was aimed at making recommendations to the Chinese government in regards to possible copyright law reform saying that anti-circumvention laws should take a balanced approach so as to encourage content creators to create new content while allowing interoperability to allow consumers to enjoy content legally as well as allow innovation in related industries."
