[David Lawrence] "The Bono Copyright Act has nothing to do with protecting society."

And here's the tricky part...people seem to think that pointing out that copyright being primarily used to enrich mega-corporations is bad argument...say that if you argue that depriving an artist of his penny (or less even) of royalty on the iTunes single that you pirated isn't that big of a deal.

However, then is the near obliteration of public domain via legislation bought and paid for by these mega-corporations also fair? Certain people would like to drop the "theif" label on those who make an exact duplicate of a piece of software and learn on it until they can afford it, but apparently don't give a single shit about the absolute destruction of public domain simply to keep money flowing into the coffers of people who are generations removed from the person who actually did the work of creation.
