Idiocy of the utmost level.
"Sometimes, the law is an ass. And copyright law, as it’s metastasized over 300 years, definitely possesses ass-like qualities.
The Hadfield Space Oddity takedown is the perfect example of how copyright, which is supposed to promote creativity and increase our access to knowledge and culture, all too often ends up doing the exact opposite. Instead, it becomes a way for copyright owners – usually large multinationals, not actual creators – to control what gets created and seen.
Most people lucky enough not to spend every waking moment thinking about copyright may think that’s just fair – it is their stuff, after all. But what this completely understandable, instinctive response misses is that this will to control often ends up being a veto over the future creation of knowledge and culture."

Termed “The Common Sense in Copyright Act,”

I love the name.

It is not just another version. It is The Version, of The Song.
Welcome back Commander Hadfield. And thanks.

I waited too long to see this.
Really great talk between Dawkins and Krauss. It's two hours long (with the Q&A session, without that it's barely 1 hour 15 minutes), but definitely worth the time.

Good analysis on the problem with copyright now a days.
