House Republicans: Copyright Law Destroys Markets; It's Time For Real Reform | Techdirt

Update: Wow. It took less than 24 hours for the RSC to fold to Hollywood pressure. They have now retracted the report and attempted to claim that it was not properly vetted.

Frankly, if they wanted to win back the youth vote, this was exactly how not to do it. If you just look through the comments on our post on the original, or through the Twitter response to this report, there were tons of people -- many of whom were lifelong Democrats -- claiming that they would switch parties if the GOP stuck with this. Instead, they folded like a cheap card table in less than 24 hours. -- That Was Fast: Hollywood Already Browbeat The Republicans Into Retracting Report On Copyright Reform | Techdirt

Your Say

I read the article on copyright reform and it's too bad they caved. Why should Disney be able to hold everyone hostage? We still don't have F.Scott Fitzgerald's works in public domain! I found out yesterday that many of the books still locked under copyright in this country are available under Australian copyright laws. It's a ridiculous situation.

Their power extends all the way to Hamas' use of the rat to indoctrinate the young suicide bombers of Gaza. Even Hamas fears the rat.

The republicans caved into bigger government and less freedom... so what is new?

The sentiment below needs applying far and wide:

"Would the first person to measure the distance between Trumka's ears with an ice pick please report back? Thanking you in advance."

Vanderleun, your awesome!

There will be no resistance and opposition to Obama if you leave it up to John Boehner and Mitch McConnell. Replace them as leaders or stop expecting resistance. How many years of ineffective opposition must happen before we replace the losers running our side? Is our side as retarded as liberals when it comes to seeing reality? If Boehner and McConnell could advance our goals they would already have done it.

Stop bitching about Obama and force the GOP to choose fighters for leaders AND THEN fight Obama. Name 2 things either wet noodle won as leader of their chamber. I'll wait. Go call your Congressman and let him know you won't support any Republican if they leave Boehner as Speaker. There isn't one good reason you can't make that call or send that email today.
