Compare And Contrast Two Systems To Let People Notify Elected Officials About Their Feelings On PROTECT IP
from the who's-about-creativity? dept
I find this contrast to be quite telling. On the one side, we have an industry that claims to promote creativity and uniqueness -- and which abhors the idea of copying anyone else (at least in its statements). On the flipside, we have the EFF, often derided as a bunch of "piracy apologists," who just want to copy everything and have no concern for creativity. Kinda shows how wrong those views are when you look at how they treat this effort at public participation, doesn't it? Of course, the other thing that it shows is that Universal Music doesn't trust people to actually say what it wants. The EFF, however, has plenty of trust that people will use the form intelligently.
