GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION AT VOTE
Repeal "WA Copyright Charter"
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation
Proposed by: Embolalia
Description: WA General Assembly Resolution #61: WA Copyright Charter (Category: Education and Creativity; Area of Effect: Artistic) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
Argument: BELIEVING the people have a right to partake in their own culture
UNDERSTANDING that the primary purpose of copyright is to promote the creation of new works;
NOTING that it is very difficult to motivate people who have been dead for a quarter century;
PUZZLED why the World Assembly nonetheless insists upon this as the minimum term for copyright;
CONCERNED that the wording of the resolution forces a system of guilt until proven innocence in the case of fair use, which runs contrary to the legal systems of many member nations;
WHOLEHEARTEDLY BELIEVING that, other than the aforementioned flaws, the resolution is well written and strikes a decent balance between the rights of the people and the promotion of creativity;
HOPING a similar resolution will be promptly passed, with the aforementioned flaws addressed;
The World Assembly hereby repeals Resolution #61, “World Assembly Copyright Charter”.
