It is interesting that (according to Earthstation 5's owners) the Palestinian Authority's IP regulations protect Palestinian copyrights more than foreign ones.

It seems to me the only way this type of plan could work could work would be to have economic independence as well, so the state couldn't be pressured into changing IP law. Arguably a different currency scheme (but the history of digital cash shows little room for hope here).


Do you see two models out there: national IP (jumped-up mercantilism) and international (WIPO mapping a mix of Euro and US IP onto the world)?
