I mostly understand that our elected representatives are beholden to the corporations that help them earn that office, and that has a trickle down effect to appointed positions. But wouldn't it be possible for the head of the FCC to explain to people how his ruling will affect them? Maybe if things were explained in simple terms?

Okay, I gotta ask - exactly why do artists think they're owed a living?

Maybe I'm missing something here but when did access to music become a right? Last time I checked The United States still practiced some form of capitalism. If you don't like the price of something you have the ability to NOT BUY IT. I'm tired of hearing people talk about how bad a company is and continue to buy or steal (talking about all products not just copyrighted work)things prduced by said company. We as Americans (I'm looking at you too Canadia)seem to have lost the most powerful tool our society has given us. That is the power to vote. If you don't like the price DON'T BUY IT. If you don't like the quality DON'T BUY IT. If you don't like how the company operates DON'T BUY IT. I could go on and on but I think you get my point.

The Force is what holds everything together. It has its dark side, and it has its light side. It's sort of like cosmic duct tape.
