Copyright Assembly

>From the listing of potential participants at this Assembly I suspect they
are concerned about the "theft" of TV signals and their "re-broadcast"
over the WWW.

A Canadian company (IcraveTV) was recently doing this and has (a week or
so ago) been stopped by a US court injunction.  In theory Icravetv
restricted access to Canadians (where such activities are probably legal)
but the US Networks, Mr Valenti and the NFL were quite concerned.
