time to take away the RIAA’s privileges

Alexander Wolfe over at Information Week has an article up with a great suggestion: deal with the RIAA as we do with misbehaving children: take away their privileges. He proposes shortening corporate copyrights from the current 125 years to 5 years, because they are clearly being abused – cf. the RIAA’s legal carpet bombing of file sharers. Copyright terms are way too long, and a little accountability for the RIAA’s abuse of the legal system would be nice. This is a great proposal.
