I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

You are reporting the following comment to the PledgeBank team:

Digital rights isn't just about what you can buy, use or download its also about the rights that you have to your own intellectual property and its use electronically.

For instance, if you're a band that has a recording contract dated before any electronic distribution then it is likely that the owner of that distribution contract will claim that it covers electronic distribution without any change.

If you're a blogger and you get misquoted and libelled by someone in another legal jurisdiction then right now you have to sue in that jurisdiction which isn't going to happen.

Digital Rights is going to require agreed International Laws that countries adopt if its to mean anything at all. Digital Rights in the United Kingdom will mean nothing if they're traduced in another country.
