[News] OBAMAA and Biden Slammed for Crowing Anti-FOSS People (MAFIAA and BSA)

Joe Biden promises a blank check to the entertainment cartel

,----[ Quote ]
| VP Joe Biden stood up in front of a bunch of Hollywood execs and promised to 
| appoint a copyright czar, and furthermore, that this would be the "right" 
| person to protect their interests. I would have voted Dem in the last 
| election, if I got a vote, but make no mistakes: the Dems are the party of 
| stupid copyright laws.    


Administration Lobbyist Ban Not Doing What It's Supposed To Do

,----[ Quote ]
| We've already seen how the Justice Department is, for example, being filled 
| with lawyers who regularly worked with the RIAA, MPAA and BSA -- three of the 
| biggest copyright lobbying organizations, and those individuals have wasted 
| no time in expressing their desire to continue pushing those industry's 
| viewpoints in their new positions.     


For the Munchkins who can't see relevance to FOSS, c/f link below. It's all
part of the same gang, which put DRM in Windows.

"Value your freedom or you will lose it, teaches history. "Don't bother us with
politics," respond those who don't want to learn."

RIAA Brief Attacks Free Software Foundation

,----[ Quote ]
| In their proposed response, the RIAA lawyers personally attacked The Free
| Software Foundation, Ray Beckerman (NewYorkCountryLawyer), and NYCL's
| blog, 'Recording Industry vs. The People'. The 9-page response (PDF) — 4
| pages longer than the document to which it was responding — termed the FSF an
| organization 'dedicated to eliminating restrictions on copying,
| redistribution, and modifying computer programs', and accused the FSF of
| having an 'open and virulent bias against copyrights' and 'blatant bias'
| against the record companies.
