Manipulation, corporate-style?

In cyberspace

Groklaw, the web site, created and edited by Pamela "PJ" Jones, begun as an experiment in applying Open Source principles to legal research, is reporting the manipulation in Austria of the process that led to the WSIS.

Georg C. F. Greve of the Free Software Foundation Europe explains the entire issue in The Complete Story of the Vienna Conclusions and writes:

During the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in Tunis, one of my trips brought me to the Austrian booth in order to pick up some copies of the Vienna Conclusions to spread and advertise. When flipping through the text, I was quite shocked to find references to Free Software removed and a pro-DRM statement inserted in the findings of the "Digital Rights/Creative Commons" workshop ("To ensure ongoing innovation, Digital Rights Management (DRM) development and deployment must remain voluntary and market-driven."). Also, references to the cultural and social significance of software as "digital cultural technique" were watered down.
