Boing Boing points towards Obama supports “open debates”: remix, reuse, comment, re-distribute.
I am a strong believer in the importance of copyright, especially in a digital age. But there is no reason that this particular class of content needs the protection. We have incentive enough to debate. The networks have incentive enough to broadcast those debates. Rather than restricting the product of those debates, we should instead make sure that our democracy and citizens have the chance to benefit from them in all the ways that technology makes possible.”
Thumbs up from me. Words are coming from someone who understands open content and open technology! Ideally the finance bill being passed through should also have seen the light of the day in a similar fashion according to me, at least for the people from the financial corporate world.
