WTO Doesn’t Care About Human Rights

Apparently, the MPAA/RIAA war on piracy is more important than people’s lives now:

“The agreement, said aid group Oxfam International, is ‘a betrayal of development promises by rich countries, whose interests have prevailed yet again.’

It will ‘roll back the enjoyment of human rights around the world’ by putting stable food supplies and health services at risk for the poor, said a coalition of 50 rights groupings.”

This is the same organization through which most of the DMCA-like laws are being pressed on the governments of the world (with the US doing a good deal of the pressing). Obviously, stopping media “piracy” is more important, than, you know, feeding people.
