Legal We always try to avoid politics like the plague here on OSNews, but sometimes, it's hard to avoid it. Take the case of Joel Tenenbaum, who could be liable for over 1 million USD if the Recording Industry Association of America gets its way. While many hoped for a change of pace when it comes to these matters, Barack Obama's Department of Justice has squarely sided with the RIAA.

Absolutely. Obama is a talker, nothing more, not that most politicians who get anywhere near the top in our government do anything but talk and follow the money like a dog on a leash. I still can't decide whether he really believed he could change and is now realizing he can't do any of the things he insisted he could do, or if he knew all along, though I lean toward the latter situation. But no matter who gets elected in our system, you're simply going to have the same crap repeated daily. Inertia has a power all its own, and short of a massive reform and removal of the current politicians and government structure, it won't change at all. Our own system works exactly the way it was designed to work, and yet works against and underminds itself now, collapsing under its own inefficiency and those who milk it for everything they can.
