Boeing-Boeing runs a story about UN World Intellectual Property Organization trying to organize worldwide censorship, ban podcasts and perform some other interesting things sake saving the market positions of current media-monopolies.

Here is an excerpt:

UN cooking podcast-killing treaty
The UN’s World Intellectual Property Organization has reconvened to discuss a treaty that will kill innovative Internet audio/video offerings — like podcasting, YouTube, Google Video, and Democracy Player — in order to protect the business models of a few entrenched broadcasters. This is the Broadcast Treaty, and the process — never pretty — got uglier than ever today.

Hurry up writing for DS – blogging and podcasting maybe banned soon. Surely – for the benefit of the civilized world.
