Yahoo!: Deadline Passes for European Digital Copyright Law. ‘A deadline for adopting a new EU law on copyright protection has passed with just two member countries signing up, dealing a blow to media and software companies beset by unauthorized duplication of their works across the Internet.’ The two countries are Greece and Denmark, which is odd, considering I thought Ireland had do so too.

Yay ISPs!
