copyright rerform surprise

Readers will know I'm not in the habit of finding positive things in the modern Republican Party, but Bill Stoddard links to a proposal on copyright reform from the Republican Study Committee, aka the Republican House Caucus. He links to both a summary and the actual 9 page working paper PDF, which I read, and it all seems perfectly reasonable; I couldn't find a policy booby trap, just a gratuitous anti-government line. Mind you there's no actual bill yet, and it wouldn't be enough to outweigh the general burden of Republicanism for me, but it'd be nice if someone does push it.

Stopped clocks and all; I went to the RSC web page, and did not find a general outburst of surprising sanity, though it's not raving lunacy either, mostly a general "starve the federal government / transfer power to the states" which might seem tempting if you don't consider past experience. Plus I was reading 2-page summaries that wouldn't have the worst details.

Update: they've taken down the report. RIAA/MPAA influence suspected. But I've save a copy.
