Verizon Lawyer Says Telecoms Siding with Consumer Rights Groups On Copyrights

Today, CNET News.com published an interview with Sarah Deutsch, VP and Associate General Counsel of Verizon. In it, she suggests that many telecom companies are leaning toward consumer rights groups' positions on proposed changes in Copyright Law and away from the positions taken by the Entertainment Industry. This is interesting because it has not been clear where companies like Verizon stood on some of these issues, up to now.

If Deutsch is correct in her assesment of other telecom companies' positions on this issue, than the currently proposed legislation to strengthen Copyright holder's legal rights will be opposed by many more paid lobbyists than many consumer rights groups had expected.
