This is really interesting. Hollywood and RIAA, which support draconian/protectionist copyright law, have a lot of influence with the Democrat positions. The tech world, which is mostly young people, is really impressed by the Republican alternative proposed in the memo. I also happen think adoption these positions are a great way to get young people into the Republican party. (Of course, I also agree with the proposals, and think that the current US legal stance on copyright law isn't conservative at all).

Just wanted to point out a way we can apply conservative principles (move to the right) on an issue and pick up new voters in under-represented demographics.

Unfortunately, the memo was retracted by the authors a few days later under pressure from lobbyists...
