Media and Tech Companies warn that new EU laws could restrict growth of emerging media formats

An alliance of companies which includes Vodaphone Group PLC, Intel Corp., Yahoo Inc, ITV PLC, and Cisco Systems Ltd. has warned a proposal by a European Commission that sets out new rules for traditional broadcasters could have unintended consequences. The legislation is meant to level the playing field by applying the same rules to everyone.

    At first I misread your title to say “white stripes sue daily music and tech news” and was going to congratulate you for being attacked by such a big group.

    And Stuart, you should come back, Katharine does an excellent job with this article each day.

    Didn’t Sarah McLaughlin’s ex-drummer sue her on similar grounds – and LOSE? And didn’t Dan Brown get sued for supposedly stealing an idea from Holy Blood, Holy Grail – and WIN? Couldn’t Chuck Berry or the estate of Muddy Waters or someone like that sue pretty much everybody?

    Whatever.
