Presentation: Dagþór S. Haraldsson

Accused of Thievery by FTT

The presentation examines the copyright royalty collecting societies in Iceland, such as FTT, and explains how they accuse regular people of being thieves while in fact acting worse themselves. The presentation will look at the newest solution proposed by the copyright industry, the old idea of an Internet levy, and examine why it is unfair, especially in comparison to how things work in real life. The presentation is based on an article, written by the presenter and published in Fréttablaðið.
