Copyright Reform? You're silly.

Amazingly, the Republican Study Committee (RSC) had released a report suggesting copyright reform[0]. Of course, that's a silly thing to do when you're in bed with organizations like the MPAA and RIAA; the report was quickly retracted[1].

It would have been a surprising step forward; maybe there's hope yet, assuming the GOP can get a handle on itself.
