Legal Despite doing what I think are some great things for the American people, the Obama administration has a dark side. Joe Biden and many others on staff come straight from the RIAA camp, and it shows. Today, the Obama administration disregarded every US law relating to theft and copyright by stating that piracy is "flat, unadulterated theft".

I understand how US administration vs. copyright winds up here, but how about we keep our opinions about this or the prior US administration off this site. I'm happy to discuss politics but here would only be the place if its proper policy regards tech.

Copyright and how it is applied has very much to do with technology, especially networked technology and audiovisual applications. How a government handles such things and what the implications may be to us, the technical audience, is very important. Therefore I do feel such discussions are right at home here.

Agreed.

I actually would prefer read this stuff:

"Commodore USA to relaunch Amiga brand with series of AROS desktops"

instead of non-sense politics.

After reading that Hyperion is taking legal actions against Commodore USA, I actually prefer read about Obama guvernment policies.

What a dirty world, my God!
