Submission + - Czech Government Wants to Kill Creative Commons ( 1

Dangerous_Minds writes: Drew Wilson of ZeroPaid is pointing to a dramatic report from the Czech Republic. A Czech Republic media website managed to obtain a leaked copy of the draft copyright bill that could make its way into government (report available both in Czech and in English) The idea is to mandate all open licenses (Creative Commons, GPL/GNU, etc.) to go through a bureaucratic process in an effort to discourage people from using the licenses. EDRI and ZeroPaid both note that this is contrary to the spirit of Creative Commons and could severely constrain its usability.

The leaked draft is available, but is in Czech only.
