Great video. As I said in the podcast, copyright is merely a selling point. This is about Obama, or some "thing" higher than him.

Interesting comparison to the Protestant Reformation. I always felt that modern copyright law is equivalent to the Reformation. Martin Luther fought the monopolization of information which was in crooked hands.

It took Catholicism 500 years and 3 councils to get things right with regard to inappropriate means of fundraising, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, education of its members, and treatment of other faiths - and with crooked bishops and shrinking attendance, they still have a long way to go.

Either we can let the Mainstream Media force us into the Divine Right of Kings and Popes, or we can continue to stand against it, building our society on the freedom we have earned through technology.

Thank you for this great video. I'm putting it on my blog.
