  2. Jonathan, thanks for the draft letter. I’ll post a link on both my blogs to it. Draft letters are always good because many people won’t write even though they think the issue is important. A draft makes it easy for them to have their voice heard. Keep fighting the good fight.

  9. I wish Obama would make a stand against this legislation. Artists have been asking for him to make his opinion known for a couple of years now. I actually have a great concern that Obama will support it instead of knocking it down if it is passed. Mainly because Obama has not shown much respect for copyright and artist rights in general. I say that because of the support he has given to Shepard Fairey who has infringed the copyright of fellow artists at least five times that I know of. Surely someone with the internet savvy that Obama has would be aware of those violations and other allegations concerning Shepard and copyright issues. Not a popular position to have, but I think it is one worth looking into. Could the champion of art and culture end up taking our rights away?

  10. Even if Obama did Veto it, the Senata passed the resolution unanimously, meaning that it could have overturned any veto. Obama wouldn't be able to stop this one from coming true. As for his respect for copyright he has nominated a former RIAA attorney to be third in command at the Justice Department. I'm not saying he won't try to bring some copyright reform, but he isn't one-sided on the issue either.

    We really won't know what will happen until he takes office. Until then, all we're doing is guessing. He appears to be more copyright reform minded than any of our other presidents, but there are signs both ways.
