The Register of Copyrights is about to retire – now is a good time to panic

You've probably heard the news already that the head of the US Copyright Office plans to retire at the end of this year. What you might have missed is why you should care.

Take a moment and think about who her replacement will be.

Right now we have a Vice-President who has clearly bought in to the story told by  Big Media.  (No, Mr. Biden, piracy is not theft.) And given that the US Congress sold their soul long, long ago, what kind of candidate do you think they'll approve?

The new Register will be able to influence copyright law for the next 20 years. Think about the damage that person could cause, and then go contact your Congressman. Please. It's not to late to do something.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
