GUEST,T in Oklahoma (Okiemockbird) Scathing Article on Recording Industry (14) RE: Scathing Article on Recording Industry 19 Jun 00


Here is a talk by Beau Brashares which makes many of the same points Courtney Love makes.

I disagree with the implication in Ms. Love's talk that Orrin Hatch is, and Sonny Bono was, friendly to all artists. These two lawmakers are copyright maximalists who by their actions have expressed contempt for the public domain, the intellectual commons on which folk musicians rely. Orrin Hatch's view of copyright law is not "progressive". Rather, his views recall the London Stationers' monopoly and the Star Chamber.
