RIAA: U.S. copyright law 'isn't working'
Its time we passed legislation that requires ISPs, Web companies, Search engines to monitor any "illegal activity"RIAA: U.S. copyright law 'isn't working' | Politics and Law - CNET News
In response to a question from CNET, Sherman said it may be necessary for the U.S. Congress to enact a new law targeting intermediaries such as broadband providers, Web hosts, payment processors, and search engines.
The RIAA would strongly prefer informal agreements inked with intermediaries, Sherman said: "We're working on [discussions with broadband providers], and we'd like to extend that kind of relationship--not just to ISPs, but [also to] search engines, payment processors, advertisers."
But, Sherman said, "if legislation is an appropriate way to facilitate that kind of cooperation, fine."They say technology slows down for no one. I know it outruns my wallet. I figure its because my wallet isn't light enough yet.

The title is right, copyright was supposed to cover things for a limited time, and then they'd fall into the public domain. When was the last time something actually became public domain?
Copyright law no longer supports the greater good, the public interest. It must be reformed, but not how the **AA's want it reformed....

RIAA's goal: get a fee for every eyeball and every ear for every minute of content they see and hear.
Consumer's goal: pay a reasonable price for their entertainment.
Who wins? Only you, the consumer, can decide [with your money]. Don't feed the monster and it will eventually starve. I swear there are a great many fantastic alternatives to their content, much of which is vastly healthier and more productive.
