One thought on “Disney successfully lobbied Congress to extend the length of copyright protection….

    Once again, democracy for sale. Disney, with their billions of dollars, bought extended copyright protection for Mickey Mouse. While I am not denying Mickey’s interest in being protected, what is to stop another mega corporation, like Exxon-Mobil, from using its billions of dollars to get special laws passed so it can make dirty or dangerous ventures into more corporate profit. And all the while, some small studio with some other mouse who needs protection will find their mouse eaten by some corporate cat.

    It is supposed to be one person, one vote. But time and time again it turns into one dollar, one vote.
