Comment Neelie
[...] Our duty as lawmakers is to find a balance between creators and the justified interests of society. Yet that balance is changing. Transforming technology is changing how people use and re-use information. And disrupting a longstanding legal framework.

That legal framework is predicated on protecting business models, not business interests. The distributors and publishers STILL get the money (and the protectionism) first. We need to stop using the sale of copies as a business model and look for other sources of funding.

She makes a debatable presumption about the task of lawmakers. Besides, she speaks about "a balance between creators and the justified interests of society". How about "a balance between society and the justified interests of creators?"
