Re: Money

Copyright laws need to be eliminated and rebuilt. Back into a system that supports the artists and not the corporate machine. Same thing with patents, Kill them and rebuild the system into something that pushes innovation forward and not just used as a litigation tool.

Both are good things but both have been corrupted by conglomerates and no longer really reflect the original intentions of their own invention.

Copyright was supposed to give a limited time exclusive rights to one's work... I would hardly call life+75yrs a limited time.

I will be perfectly happy if the budget cuts specified in the Budget Control Act go into effect. 3 cheers for the sequester. Take the money from the drunken federal spenders.

I love draconian copyright laws.

They ensure easy access to a huge black market.

Much the same way the war on drugs has ensured I have better and cheaper access to marijuana than legal drugs.

Not to mention... what is life+75yrs for a company / corporation? Forever?
