U.S. copyright waived in tiny nation
The Caribbean nation of Antigua and Barbuda has won the right to waive U.S. copyrights in films, television and music under an unusual ruling by the World Trade Organization. The landmark decision by the Geneva-based trade watchdog means that the tiny islands are able to violate intellectual property protection worth up to $21 million as part of a dispute between the countries over online gambling.

Shocking.

    So … If I were a betting man, I would wager that 2008 will be the year of ascendancy for Antigua and Barbuda to be the host countries for illegal download servers.

    Any takers?
