This means that the DMCA could be enforceable in Singapore – I think, IANAL. I am active in the open source movement in Singapore being a founder/immediate past president of the Linux Users’ Group (Singapore). What worries me is that there is exposure to the criminal liabilities of the DMCA for any legitimate (but refused by the vendor) request to make a product work in Linux space. The same concerns that soem Linux developers have expressed in not disclosing weaknesses in some of the Linux code for fear of DMCA is going to make things all the more problematic moving forward.

Sinks unprofitable treaties, politically or economically (e.g. Kyoto Accords–bad for industry, UN Conference on Racism–bad for domestic and Insraeli-American politics, non-proliferation treaties–bad for politics and the arms industry). When treaties are simply a stipulation to engage in profitable international trade, there is no specific anti-treaty agenda. Bush may be a bad guy, but he’s not a unnecessarily bad guy. He only violates treaties for a (albiet, in my mind, stupid) reason.

Not to muddy an otherwise exceptionally lofty discussion with petty politics.
