The copyright industry’s lobby has — again — claimed that unless strong measures are taken to enforce copyright, jobs will be lost across Europe. 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. 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.
The Medical Innovations Programme, Royal Society of Medicine It is a great honour to be invited to contribute to the Royal Society of Medicine’s innovations programme on 24 February. Unfortunately, the event is already over-subscribed with all 150 places booked. However, the good news for ColaLife supporters, who would have liked to attend, is that a video of the ColaLife presentation will be available here on the RSM website a week or so after the event.
