Journal rfc1394's Journal: Copyright Registrar reports extension 'Big Mistake'

P2Pnet has reported that Mary-Beth Peters, the Register of Copyrights spoke in a public hearing saying the extension of copyright was too long. From the article, it is reported she said, "We've certainly lengthened the term [of copyright] ... too long a term. I think it is too long. I think that was probably a big mistake..."

Note: This is a correction to my prior statement where I originaly said that she made the statement before Congress, but it was simply a public statement, it was not in a congressional hearing.
