McCain Gets Techy

John McCain lays out his tech policy, and there’s a lot of good news in it for Big Media. Among other things, he opposes net neutrality. I’ve said it before and will say it again: Someone needs to take the Constitution’s idea of time-limited copyright (as opposed to Congress’ defacto extension of perpetual copyrights) seriously. Make copyrights too short, and no one will create. Make them too long, and creators will get lazy. Hollywood and the legacy music industry long ago passed into sloth.
