Node Of Evil - Fair And Balanced Reporting

For those who feel the war on terrorism
could use a little "Structural Adjustment".

Hey all, here's something that's vitally important -- the U.N. aid program in Palestine is close to running out of funds. Please take a minute to donate something to help the Palestinian refugees. You can donate here. More information about the program can be found here.

Who We Are: Did you feel left out of the "Axis of Evil"? Do you not have enough WMD's to qualify?

We're here to welcome all who disagree with, or generally dislike, any aspect of the war on terrorism with open arms! Declare yourself an enemy of the state - join the Node Of Evil.

Why join the Node Of Evil? We offer benefits such as a clear conscience and the ability to express your opinion, plus the opportunity to lob a few political hot potatos in the general direction of the White house.

Correction: the Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act is the specific piece of offending legislation. Below we stated that it extended the copyright for 75 years. This, obviously, would put "Steamboat Willie" into the public domain this year and is an error -- the Sonny Bono act extends corporate copyrights to 90 years, thus ole Willie won't go public until 2023 or so. It varies a bit depending on the type of copyright, too; individual copyrights are extended to life of owner plus 70 years, for instance. Either way, the Act damages the public domain and thus we plan several protest actions throughout the year to coincide with the Disney focus on Mickey...

'Quick thought; I just saw a lede on the LA Times website about Disney's plans to hype the mouse (Mickey, that is), in celebration of his 75th birthday. May I suggest that we also take the opportunity to protest the extension of copyrights to 75 years -- Mouse or no Mouse, the U.S. thrives on public domain (see Linux) and the extension of copyrights directly threatens the concept of a public domain.
