The TPP, IP, and Digital Policy: My CABE Presentation

Earlier this week, I delivered a webinar for the Canadian Association of Business Economics on the implications of the TPP. The talk touched on a wide range of concerns including copyright, privacy, culture, and digital policies. A video of the talk can be found here.

    • I should be more clear. That is the message I’m getting trying to play the video of the talk.

        Seems to work for me, and I’ve got all sorts of firewalling and adblocking going on.

        You may want to check your browser for settings that would be interfering with it.

      • I’ve got the same problem. And yes, I’ve adjusted all settings to allow just about everything here. This video is simply not going to play on KDE/BSD. Perhaps Microsoft fans will have better luck. Frankly, I think this is an embarrassment for this blog. At the very least it would be polite to provide a link to a more democratic implementation.

    Meanwhile in Europe the opposition to TTIP is rising so much that newspapers are saying it will never be ratified.

    Does not work under Chrome with no blockers. Perhaps a cookies setting?

    Is there a transcript?

    If I switch my IP to Canada, no problem so it looks like there’s geoblocking going on which is very ironic, not to mention annoying.

    • @OneEyedPirate
      I don’t think it’s geoblocking. I just tried on another machine using Tor and exits in Romania, Switzerland, and France work just fine. I’m still guessing that it is Vimeo who have unfriendly technology.

      • OneEyedPirate says:

        They could be blocking some Tor exit nodes, not because they don’t like Tor, but because the exit node ended up on a block list. I should know better by now not to jump to conclusions.

        • @OneEyedPirate I think you misunderstood me. My point was that it does work with Tor, and from multiple countries. I said this as an offering of proof that it is not a matter of geoblocking. At this point I am pretty sure it is just some quirky and fashionable codex as it works on some of my machines (even the Tor one) but not on others.

  6. OneEyedPirate says:

    … not to mention completely pointless.
