Attention Linux elitists:
If you're a US citizen seeking to use copyrighted works you
PAID FOR, the government wants to ignore YOU.
Send a list of ways in which the Digital Millennium Copyright
Act will fuck up YOUR life and work to /dev/null, I mean
follow the instructions for comments at:
http://www.loc.gov/copyright/1201/anticirc.html -- same thing.
You don't have the money to BUY the government, so you just get
the time-limited, advertising-loaded "Government Lite" sample
That URL again:
Remember you don't have to believe that one person can make
a difference, you can get almost as much satisfaction from the
smug realization that you were there when It All Started and
your most sincere pleading to the already-purchased government
didn't amount to a damn thing.
I'll throw some kind of pathetic whimper about fair use and
libraries and commonly acceptable academic standards into the
pile. At least they take email so I don't have to trash
trees as well as my carpal tunnels.
