A very interesting post. I haven’t dealt much with South Africa IP law, it just hasn’t come up much in my own incidents, but I will be following this series closely. So far, it seems to closely enough follow U.S. law.
However, in the long run, U.S. law will likely dominate just because most hosts are U.S. based. However, as hosts in the E.U. and elsewhere begin to gain traction, so will other versions of the law.
It will be interesting to see how that shakes out.
Thank you for this very interesting post!
