David P. Reed: More on vengeance rights and piracy. “Congress and the other two branches are on a tear, on the assumption that more protection will somehow increase the production of creative work. While it is clear that some protection increases the production, too much protection, or the wrong kind of protection, can certainly have the opposite effect.”

“each Congress person should stop trying to ratchet up copyright protection towards global thermonuclear war”

(I’m honored that he calls my letter “brilliant”!)
