    Back when the recording industry and other ‘copyright holders’ was waging their jihad on teenagers with internet access, they were putting in place some rather draconian laws and fines for infringement. I knew then that this was going to come back and bite them in the ass, real hard.

    Because the problem is, we are all ‘copyright holders’ the moment we create something original (or even derived from something else). Those draconian fines and laws work for us, too.

    At least until Congress comes back and creates a new lower class of copyright holder who does not get the protections of the donor class. The GOP would sponsor that bill in a heartbeat and the Dems would do anything to support it and their friends.
