Milestone Adds Anti-Abuse, Anti-China 'Copenhagen Clause'

By: IPVM Team, Published on Feb 26, 2019

Milestone announced, at its annual MIPS Americas partner conference, the addition of a 'Copenhagen clause' that strengthens their human rights legal terms, countering anti-democractic and misuse of Milestone's software.

This comes just months after Milestone dropped the world's largest camera manufacturer, China-government owned Hikvision, from their Elite Partners, who at last year's event was a prominent participant but had no presence at this year's one.

In this note, we examine:

  • What the Copenhagen Clause Does
  • What it is based on
  • Milestone's Human Rights abuse EULA clause
  • Milestone's explanation to IPVM
  • Milestone encouraging partners
  • How it takes a strong anti-PRC (People's Republic of China) position
  • How this is likely to impact Milestone's Hikvision usage and partnerships
