laws should never be static. they need to be updated to fit the age. copyright was never updated in peoples' favor, only in corporations' favor. that, in itself, means that it was not maintained in a fair and just manner.
I disagree. Laws should be static. They should be based on principles so that they do not need to change with each new technology. Search and seizure of personal effects? Applies to email and phone conversations now as much as it did to letters in the 1700s. The current unconstitutional interpretation is absolute shit because it violates the principle behind the 4th. THAT is the real problem.
