Whispering Campaign Against Fair Use/Dealing in Copyright

On his Patry Copyright Blog, William Patry, Senior Copyright Counsel, Google Inc. and author of Patry on Copyright argues that there is an ongoing whispering campaign against the concept of fair use:

"There is a counter-reformation movement afoot in the world of copyright. The purpose of the movement is to chill the willingness of countries to enact fair use or liberal fair dealing provisions designed to genuinely further innovation and creativity, rather than, as is currently the case, merely to give lip service to those concepts as the scope of copyright is expanded to were-rabbit size."
