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
