My friends and I are trying to decide who to vote for congress in the 2006 elections. We live in the 10th congressional district of California (Alameda, Contra Costa, Solano, and Sacramento Counties). There isn't much offline info available about the candidates. Their names are Darcy Linn http://www.darcylinn.com , Jeff Ketelson http://www.k4a.net , and Ellen Tauscher http://www.ellentauscher.com . Any advice would be helpful. thanks.

[This discussion sprang from this TBTF Log posting.]

The Clinton-Gore administration oversaw a vast expansion of rights for intellectual-property holders at the expense of the public's right to fair use of materials in which someone claims IP ownership.

I'm curious how Bush-Cheney will treat this subject. My best guess would be a continuing expansion of IP rights claims by benign neglect of the commons. Can anyone cite any campaign statements made by either the Republican candidates or their party?

The Clinton-Gore stance on IP was fueled, the cynics among us say, by Hollywood's unprecedented level of contribution to the Democrats' 1992 and 1996 campaigns (and presumably also to Gore-Lieberman in 2000). Does anyone have hard data on how much the IP interests gave to Bush-Cheney this time around?
