To me it all seems pretty simple.
We need strong copyright - we mustn't allow people to steal other people's work.
We need sensible rules - if I buy a book (and the right to read it) in Paris, I need to be able to take it with me and read it when I go from Paris to Seattle.
It's all as simple as that. Why can't these idiots understand it, and tell the corporations who are trying to prevent such simple rules from applying to get lost?
