Copyright Reforms [Essays]

Copyright & trademarks have immense impacts on the cost of our daily life regardless of where we live in the world – medicines, entertainment, food, you name it..  You probably haven’t even heard of the Trans Pacific Partnership, a negotiation between nations this is being done in secret, & is influenced more by corporations than by countries interested in protecting their citizens. A few weeks ago, Derek Khanna (@dkhanna11), a Republican staffer, authored a paper on Copyright reform, which was retracted almost immediately after pressure, ostensibly from the entertainment industry.  The Way Forward on Copyright Reform is a thoughtful essay by Khanna & expected this post to be updated as others weigh in.
