Republican Study Committee fires staffer who wrote memo urging copyright reform - Yahoo! News
"As TechDirt reported last month, Khanna’s memo made a libertarian case for changing America’s copyright laws by criticizing current copyright law for giving content producers “a guaranteed, government instituted, government subsidized content-monopoly” and for being “corporate welfare that hurts innovation and hurts the consumer.” TechDirt later reported that the memo caused the RIAA and MPAA lobbyists to go “ballistic and hit the phones hard, demanding that the RSC take down the report,” which the RSC promptly did."
It seems the republicans like the overbloated media and how they want to restrict the internet because those people give them lots of money. It is clear that the old way of doing stuff is wastefull and we no longer need to give huge wads of cash to RIAA execs for snorting coke and telling radio stations what to play while starving the artists. Thank you republicans for keeping our media sanitized for our protection. Never let it be said that republicans are for open creative art.
