Speaking Politician's Language


Joe Kraus spent two years as a lobbyist in DC on technology issues. Joe recently spoke to the Always Online 2005 Summit and said we need to talk to DC in terms they can understand. Not copyrights, but economics. That's an important distinction to make in the fight against Hatch as well. Hatch's supporters will try to turn his support for DCMA and INDUCE into a fight against "lawbreakers" instead of what they really are: attacks on the new economy, innovation, and small companies. I do not, under any circumstances support the theft of anyone else's property--intellectual or real--but I also don't think we should destroy whole classes of legitimate businesses to protect the entrenched interests of Hollywood.
