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.

I don't think anyone claimed the Republicans would fix it. They might. But, like most Democrats, most Republicans are in the pay of Big Content.

The claim that the Obama Administration and the current Congress are not fixing the problem is certainly true.

I am sure there are other Democrats who have reasonable positions on copyright and would be glad to reform the copyright laws.
