You may recall only a few days ago a Republican think tank suggesting that perhaps Copyright is too strong. Well, the guy who did that has now been fired.
So this tells us two things. First, the entertainment industry really has Washington in its pocket. And second, that neither major party disagrees with the copyright maximalist notion that the internet, and all public discourse, needs to be policed constantly for copyright violations.
In other words, neither party really gives a damn about free speech.
