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!

Actually, what we need is: NO parties. The second you get a party, or even a candidate who "represents" you, the issues not only become segregated into bins, but likely biased towards the representatives own needs.


With the digital age we could finally have democracy truly have an affect on government, but this will probably not happen.
