In the News And thus, our true colours reveal. Since Obama was the young newcomer, technically savvy, many of us were hoping that he might support patent and/or copyright reform. In case our story earlier on this subject didn't already tip you off, this certainly will: Obama has sided squarely with the RIAA/MPAA lobby, and backs ACTA. No copyright and/or patent reform for you, American citizens!

I agree with you, but I will have to make clear that the American system is not bi-partisan. There *are* other parties that are electable, but two parties seem the most popular. To an outsider, it looks like there are only two parties, but there are more. The dems and the reps just get all the airplay, nobody hears about the other parties.

Great post, but I just had to correct that little oversight. Doesn't make you less wrong though.
