But someone from a lobbying group for the legacy copyright players pulled out the "you're all so smart, nerd harder" card by saying that if Silicon Valley can build a self-driving car, surely it can build a technology that can determine what is and what is not fair use.
And on the day that they turned on the technology that can determine what is and is not fair use, it looked at humanity and despaired. And then blew it all up. The end.
I'm going to need a citation here. I cannot recall ever seeing anything that reported Wyden saying that he would voluntarily break the law in order to reveal classified information, even for the good of the American public.
Also, unless you want to escape to and then live in Russia for the rest of your life, it's probably not a great idea to do this. Expecting a politician to have the bravery, courage, and expertise to pull it off is unreasonable.
Re: A simple yet costly solution for a complex problem.
Honestly, I doubt it would be that costly. What reasonable percentage of Google's income is likely to come from France? 3%? Maybe 2%? It would be well worth it in the longer run, if it got rid of all the extra hoops Google has to jump through to appease these luddites.
