Legal You think only "pirates" and "freeloaders" rail against current copyright laws? Well, think again - even the Library of Congress seemingly has had enough. The topic is recorded sound preservation, and in a 181-page in-depth study, the Library of Congress concludes that apart from technical difficulties, US copyright law makes it virtually impossible for anyone to perform any form of audio preservation. The painted picture is grim - very grim.

The problem is that the political establishment is so entrenched, and so firmly connected to the other ruling class (big capital), that the only political alternative seems to be right wing populist movements, i.e. racists of various colours. And those people don't really care about copyright reform anyway.
