The copyright industry’s lobby has — again — claimed that unless strong measures are taken to enforce copyright, jobs will be lost across Europe.

Kill Copyright, Create Jobs

This claim is false, deceptive and misleading, as it only focuses on copyright-dependent sectors while ignoring the copyright-inhibited sectors. It turns out the latter account for ten times more of the economy. Executive summary: for every job lost (or killed) in the copyright industry due to nonenforcement of copyright, 11.8 jobs are created in electronics wholesale, electronics manufacturing, IT, or telecom industries — or even the copyright-inhibited part of the creative industries. A lot of people have pointed out the laughability of the copyright industry’s claim that 1.2 million jobs will be lost until 2015 if not harsh measures are taken to enforce copyright.

Consolidation of the world’s financial markets took another big step Tuesday with the announcement that NYSE Euronext and Deutsche Borse are merging.

NYSE Euronext merging with Deutsche Borse

As Dealbook notes, the $10 billion stock deal comes on the heels of a similar deal announced last week between the London and Toronto stock exchanges. Four months ago, the Singapore stock exchange said it would buy the Australia exchange. The Muckety map above shows the recent deals. It also reflects the aggressive acquisitiveness of NYSE Euro, which formed in 2007 through a merger between NYSE Group and Euronext.

Euronext had previously acquired exchanges in Lisbon, Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam, as well as the London International Financial Futures & Options Exchange.

April and Jerry

It seems that each year, when we sit down to write our annual missive, we think “goodness, how could next year possibly top this year?” And then somehow it does. 2013 was definitely among the most notable examples of this. Because of the number and diversity of neat experiences, we’re not able to go into as much detail about each — unless we want to finish in 2020 — but hopefully still a fun read. Here’s to a banner year, now let’s get started!

TL;DR version: Got married — finally, yaaaaay! This also was a year in which we adopted the sharing economy (or collaborative economy — more on the distinction below) in full force as a lifestyle. Backing up to January 2013, which feels like a decade ago… we were blessed to be invited to the World Economic Forum’s annual summit in Davos. Lunatech Ventures » About Us.
