« We've had a copyright-like protection of databases (collections of
facts) for nearly ten years now, and the EU Commission has just
published a study of the impact of this directive on the "database

Somewhat to their displeasure, it seems, the study has shown that the
database industry hasn't grown (in fact, it shrunk), and there isn't an
economic justification for the directive. They did, however, survey the
industry to see what the industry thought of it, and people who make
databases apparently like the directive. "So that's alright, then" :) »
