Copyright maximalizm in Israel

While it shouldn’t be a surprise that copyright maximalizm, like any other American “fashion” was adopted in Israel, cases such as this one should be noted.

While in my view most copyright maximalist claims are based on shallow or even downright lack of understanding of the philosophical principles behind the copyright laws, it seems that copyright claims of organizations in Israel are based on even shallower understanding.

Not once have I seen a case where an Israeli organization attempts to enforce a certain policy, touting copyright laws as a reason, while in fact mimicking the behavior of American organizations without bothering to check what does the Israeli law has to say on the matter.
