Potential threats to online free expression seen in draft trade treaty

first_img April 23, 2010 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Potential threats to online free expression seen in draft trade treaty RSF_en Organisation Newscenter_img Reporters Without Borders welcomes the release by the European Commission of the draft Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), which until now has been the subject of confidential negotiations among some 40 countries. Released on 21 April, the draft nonetheless contains a number of provisions that could pose a threat to online free expression.“Although it is pity that the different positions of the various governments involved do not appear in this document, a real public debate will finally be able to be held about this proposed agreement, one that could have a considerable impact on freedom of expression despite being a trade agreement,” Reporters Without Borders said.“We urge the negotiators not to sacrifice online free speech and access to information for the sake of combating piracy and the counterfeiting of works protected by copyright,” the press freedom organisation continued. “It is essential to modify provisions that could lead to disconnect Internet access and provisions for online filtering in violation of the Net Neutrality principle. The concept of the Internet as a fundamental right should be clearly stated in the agreement, including in its preamble. Judicial procedures guaranteeing transparency and defence rights must also be defined more clearly.”Reporters Without Borders added: “For the time being, this accord is mainly being negotiated by democratic countries but it is supposed to be eventually extended to other countries such as China, which do not have adequate safeguards for free expression and the confidentiality of personal information.”The draft agreement covers a wide range of subjects from counterfeiting pharmaceutical drugs to the illegal downloading of works protected by copyright. Section 4 specifically concerns the digital environment. For the most part, the wording of its provisions is very general and open to differing interpretation by individual governments.Although there is no longer any direct reference to the three strike approach in this version of the agreement, some of its provisions could nonetheless allow the disconnecting of Internet access. One of the “options” for governments mentioned in the draft is “suspension of access to information.” The draft would also allow a court to issue an injunction, including at the start of case, to prevent an “imminent violation.” It would also allow copyright holders to ask Internet Service Providers to identify suspected violators of intellectual property rights. This threatens the protection of personal information and, in repressive countries, would endanger dissidents, journalists and human rights activists.The draft agreement stresses the responsibility of the Internet’s technical intermediaries, turning them into “copyright police.” Internet Service Providers and those who provide such online services as video streaming and blog platforms are right at the heart of the agreement’s provisions. ISPs could be fined if they failed to withdraw or block content that violates copyright. Such measures would have a dissuasive effect. There is a danger that technical intermediaries would remove content they regarded as potentially illegal in order to avoid prosecution, resulting in arbitrary decisions that offered little protection for the rights of Internet users. Technical intermediaries would also be required to prevent the illegal circulation of content that violates copyright. That would open the door to the introduction of Internet filtering mechanisms.The agreement includes an extremely precise calculation of the amount of damages payable for an illegally downloaded film based on the absurd assumption that it should correspond to the value of an unsold DVD.Customs and border procedures are not clearly defined. Although the agreement affirms a degree of protection for personal effects, it is possible that iPhones, iPods, personal laptops and work laptops could be seized or examined by customs officers searching for pirated works or illegally downloaded music.The negotiations have been conducted confidentially for more than two years between the European Union, United States, Australia, New Zealand, Morocco, Mexico, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Canada and Switzerland without any consultation with NGOs and civil society representatives. The European Commission represented the European Union in the negotiations.The European Parliament passed a resolution last month calling for more transparency. The next round of negotiations is due to take place at the end of June in Switzerland. Help by sharing this informationlast_img read more

Ordering thus, the Bench of Justice SM Subramanian overruled the railway tribunal’s order which had denied the compensation to her family members in the year 2016 noting that she was not a bonafide passenger and further the she committed an act of negligence. Significantly, the Bench held, “Only in the event of a criminal act or self-inflicted injury with an intention can be attributed against the victim as contemplated under Section 124(A) of the Railways Act. In all other circumstances, mere negligence or carelessness cannot be a ground to deny the compensation.” Facts in brief The application sought compensation on the ground that the deceased, who was a native of Kamanpatti Village of Dindigul District, while traveling in a train proceeding towards Chennai Beach Railway Station, due to overcrowd, speed, jerk, and a jolt of the train, accidentally fell down from the running train between Kodambakkam and Nungambakkam Railway Stations, suffered grievous injury on the back of the head and died at the place of occurrence. It was claimed that it was an untoward incident and the second-class ticket purchased by the deceased for her travel from Dindigul to Chennai Egmore was said to have been lost at the time of the accident and the same could not be traced by the Railway Police. The Counsel appearing for the respondent Railway made a submission that the accident occurred due to negligence on the part of the deceased and further she was not holding a valid ticket. Court’s observations At the outset, the Court noted that the untoward incident occurred on account of heavy rush in the running train and that the deceased sustained shock and died due to hemorrhage because of multiple injuries. The DRM report also revealed that the deceased aged about 38 years had fallen down from an unknown EMU Train and expired on the spot, while she was traveling in an unknown EMU train between MKK and NBK Railway Stations. In response to the railway’s plea that she was herself negligent, the Court said, “After duty hours, a Large number of women are forced to rush to board in EMU trains to reach their homes within a reasonable travel time…With this pressure, a greater number of women/travelers are forced to trave1 by standing in EMU trains.” The Court further opined, “Adequate safety measures are not provided, more specifically, in EMU trains. Railway Authorities are bound to provide safety measures to the passengers, more specifically, working-class passengers, who are all traveling on a day-to-day basis and while returning back from work, they will be either tired or under pressure to reach their home quickly.” Further, the Court also observed that a large number of untoward incidents are not teaching any lesson to the Railway Authorities to formulate a scheme to improve the safety measures in EMU Trains. “It is painful to state that the higher officials of the Indian Railways are receiving very decent salaries from the taxpayers’ money. Therefore, they are expected to perform their public duties with high responsibility and accountability”, the Court added. Significantly, the Court also remarked, “‘Nation first’ must be the conduct of the higher officials. Higher Officials are enjoying very sophisticated and luxurious facilities even in Railways… a Large number of passengers are suffering even for minimum facilities and adequate security in running trains.” In the end, the Court remarked that mere negligence or carelessness cannot be a ground to decline compensation to the victims. Importantly, the Court said, “Railways are also equally contributing for such negligence by not providing adequate security for the passengers traveling in EMU trains and other trains. Thus, contributory negligence also plays a pivotal role.” Case title – J.Sivakumar v. Union of India [C.M.A.No.1315 of 2016]Click Here To Download JudgmentRead JudgmentNext Storylast_img read more

Air ambulance crew help distribute Covid vaccines

first_imgThe Thames Valley Air Ambulance crew have been helping with the COVID-19 vaccine rollout across the Oxford community. Simon Wetenhall, Senior Critical Care Paramedic at Thames Valley Air Ambulance, told the Oxford Mail: “After such a tough year, the amazing progress of the UK’s Covid vaccination rollout has been a shot of good news amongst the gloom. That’s why, when I saw the opportunity to become a volunteer vaccinator in my local community, I jumped at the chance to help in the fight against Covid.  The charity delivered advanced medical care to 1497 patients across the Thames Valley and beyond last year. The staff at the air ambulance service have received their own injections and have been volunteering at vaccination centres to help deliver the jabs to patients alongside assisting in non-clinical roles. They are encouraging people to take up the offer of a vaccine when it is made available.  Image: Allen Watkin / London Air Ambulance Explorer. “For some people, the trip to get vaccinated may be the first time they have left their home in months. When people arrive for their vaccination, they tell you how much it means to them. For many, it is a sign that they might be able to see their children or grandchildren again soon. It is a light at the end of the tunnel.”last_img read more

Premier Foods under fire for takeover rejection

first_imgPremier Foods has been criticised by shareholders for its handling of a takeover offer from US spice brand, McCormick.Last week, the Mr Kipling owner announced it had rejected an offer from McCormick which valued the company at 60p a share. At the same time, it announced Japanese instant noodle brand Nissin had committed to buy a 17.27% stake in Premier as the two companies sought to form a formal relationship agreement.However, The Guardian has reported that two large shareholders in Premier Foods, Standard Life and Paulson & Co, which own more than a 14% stake between them, have urged the company to engage in talks with McCormick or other bidders.David Cumming, head of equities at Standard Life Investments, said: “We note with some dismay the timing of Nissin’s acquisition of a stake in Premier Foods. In our view, this does not reflect well on the Premier Foods board’s objectivity and commitment regarding its engagement with McCormick and, consequently, its desire to pursue maximum value for shareholders.“Although we believe the 60p bid indicated by McCormick is too low, we remain open to a bid at a higher level. We expect the Premier Foods board, on behalf of its shareholders, to engage with McCormick and pursue this option to the full.”disappointmentMcCormick, too, issued a statement, expressing disappointment at Premier’s handling of the incident, saying: “Despite McCormick’s efforts to enter into a meaningful dialogue with Premier Foods on several occasions, the board of Premier Foods has been unwilling to engage constructively with McCormick.“McCormick notes recent media comments and wishes to clarify that there has only been one face-to-face meeting with Premier Foods’ chairman, David Beever, on 12 February 2016. There has been no dialogue at any stage with any other members of the management team or with Premier Foods’ advisers, who had not been identified to McCormick until Premier Foods’ announcement on 23 March 2016.”However, Premier’s chief executive Gavin Darby defended the company’s decision to The Telegraph and indicated that it was still open to offers from either McCormick or another company.He said: “The Premier board feels very confident that rejecting 60p was a good decision. Warburg Pincus took the opportunity of selling their shares and chose to sell their shares to Nissin. Just as much as it could have been a deal between Warburg Pincus and McCormick. I’m sure all three of them were involved.“They’ve [McCormick] got to put on the table an indicative offer that’s more in line with what the board sees as the value and they’ve also got to be more clear on what any conditions are. The ball has to be in McCormick’s court.”last_img read more
