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!

When Obama started appointing "ex" RIAA, MPAA, and Microsoft lawyers to the Justice Department, the handwriting was on the wall. I'd estimate the chances of meaningful reform on patents and copywrite to be somewhere between zero and null... at least in the U.S. for the forseeable future. Democrats = Republicans. Puke.
