The Circus Is Still In Town

Congress wants to extend the copyright on some sound recordings to 144 years

Or more accurately (by the url text) : Orrin Fucking Hatch.

No one lives to 144 years old, and certainly would have no copyright interest in anything they created (namely poop) for that long. No, this is obviously a continuation of the cancer that is Corporate Personhood.

Things in the Public Domain are not “orphaned” and up for adoption by yet another corporation looking to profit from possible copyright lawsuits. There’s so much wrong with that idea that I’m nauseous and may need to go lay down for a while.

All this corporate goatfuckery is going to destroy this country. That, and the social media turning everyone with an opinion into a terrorist, but that’s a topic for another rant.
