John Bennett draws our attention to Public Knowledge (.org)
. They "preserve... the openness of the Internet and the public's access to knowledge; promote... creativity through balanced copyright; and uphold.. and protect... the rights of consumers to use innovative
technology lawfully". In the wake of SOPA/PIPA they have started the internet blueprint
an effort to crowdsource legislative proposals to protect internet freedoms.
Public Knowledge supports "balanced copyright." I do not: I do not think that any copyright serves the purposes of advancing science and the useful arts laid out in the U.S. Constitution or that it serves any useful economic purpose. However - I'd much rather have balanced copyright than what we have now so I'm delighted to see support Public Knowledge in their effort to take back our internet freedoms.
