I really like reading the tech point of view on these issues. A lot of you would consider me a copyright thumper, but I'm not. I am, however, in contrast to the "Congressman's daughter" the opposite. I'm the songwriter's daughter. (Kim Williams is my dad- not hiding behind any curtains here)
We are currently amassing a group of "economically significant" indie artists and content creators from all disciplines to discuss these issues, and we need your input. As you know, most of the ones doing the shouting are ignorant or have ulterior motives.
I'd like to find mutually beneficial solutions to these issues so that we can get along.
Tech is not the enemy of copyright owners, but is sure dressed up like it right now.
We need to work together and quit bickering.
And for songwriter/artists, we need to see what our "Advocates" look like behind the closed doors. It ain't all good, as you guys already know.
Love & Light, Amanda
