Today when I was out for my morning constitutional, I kept noticing other pedestrians who looked like me but speaking Spanish to each other. Eventually as I got near an office building near my house I saw that it was a Venezuelan polling station.
I bring this up at all because, after all, the purpose of this blog is to promote a change in the law. This requires political action, and even before that it requires convincing people.
It's a little bit hard to get people excited about copyright, still. I predict that is going to change in a hurry once all the major Internet Service Providers start spying on their users so that Hollywood can sue them. But we haven't gotten there, yet.
Larry Lessig was a copyright crusader but quit to become a clean government crusader. His feeling--and I agree with him--is that without taking care of our American problem with legalized bribery, effecting real change of any sort is impossible. I agree, but I also feel that there is lots of convincing to be done, still.
It would be easier if Americans took their governance as seriously as the Venezuelans.
