Members Of The Republican Study Committee Do Twitter Q&A, Ignore Every Single Question About Fixing Copyright
from the what-are-they-afraid-of? dept
Whoever was tweeting for the Republican Study Committee itself did respond, blandly, to two questions -- first by repeating the silly claim that the paper was pulled because it did not reflect all viewpoints, and then later arguing that it had to do with the fact that copyright was not a left or right issue. But, leaving aside the dodging by the RSC on key questions related to the study, it's somewhat stunning that no Representative would respond to a single question about copyright in over four hours of taking questions.
It makes you wonder: why is Congress so afraid to debate our broken copyright system? Who, exactly, are they afraid of?
As discussed, and contrary to the RSC's later claims, Khanna's paper lays out a very compelling case for why conservatives should be leading the way to fixing copyright. It seems like a quite reasonable subject for the members of the RSC to be willing to comment on, but outside of Darrell Issa's brief tweet in support of the paper, it appears that the over 130 members of the RSC won't even discuss one of the more pressing issues that many of their constituents are concerned about.
