Partial list of corporate lickspittles who are allowed to know what's in the secret copyright treaty the Obama administration claims is a matter
Transparency - to those of the wealthy and corporations!!!!
Perhaps that's who Obama meant transparency. For the companies who contributed to his campaign perhaps..

Remember yesterday's post about how the Obama administration had refused to release the details of a secret copyright treaty because doing so would compromise "national security?" Well, it turns out that there are plenty of people who are cleared to be privy to this "sensitive" document -- strangely, they all seem to work for giant copyright companies!
Of course, they're allowed to know what's in the treaty -- but the public, activist groups, consumer rights groups, and the artists whom this treaty is supposed to protect are all forbidden from knowing what it says.

What an embarrassment for an administration that holds itself out as an end to the corrupt, business-as-usual beltway fandango.

partial list of corporate names allowed to know what is in secret copyright treaty Obama claims is matter of "national security". Looks like Obama's promise of "transparency" in government was D.O.A. (dead on arrival). ~ Treaties are matters of law in America - NO valid Treaty or law can be secret in America under the Constitution!
