I'm not surprised. It is common to label those with whom one disagrees as disagreeing for "political reasons" rather than addressing their concerns. I'm sure I've made that mistake myself.

When a subject is taken over by government, it becomes something people fight about. No one fights about yogurt flavors, Pepsi doesn't strafe the drinkers of CocaCola. I've not yet heard of a suicide bombing by a BurgerKing devotee at a MacDonald's.

Oh well. I know very well there are positions in the discussion of Copyright law that are considered "political", so I will make none of them.

Hopefully, pointing out the sad fact of its political-ness can still be done at LXer, as this article is doing.
