“As I’ve pointed out many times, protecting ‘copyright owners’ means protecting big business, not artists. That the Librarian of Congress views songs solely as property, discarding their status as culture, is even more appalling.” – Dave Marsh, in a Counterpunch article, via librarian.net.

The TeleRead take: Time for Marsh and others to call for Jim Billington’s resignation? While the Webcasting case happens to have received big-time publicity, what about sell-outs where Billington is more quietly doing damage?
