Kevin Spacey gives the speech that needed to be given 5 years ago to Television Execs

Actor, Kevin Spacey, recently gave a speech in Edinburgh, U.K. that television executives needed to hear 5 years ago about giving customers what they want and stop standing in the way of technological innovation. While Spacey is not discussing copyright, the issue of copyright as being outmoded and not keeping up with the times is the same as these executives not keeping up with change. Although with copyright we have a twist – a doctrine that was designed to promote innovation has been stifled and choked with technology in the form of DRM – so we actually have a regression.  I would like to see more impassioned pleas such as the one given by Spacey for copyright reform.
