[dvd-discuss] Celebs against shorter patent duration


I wasn't aware that there was a bill to shorten the patent duration for 
drugs, but it doesn't surprise me who else (besides the drug co's) would 
be against it. I still can't reconcile the huge difference between 
patent vs copyright duration. I suppose I'm actually okay with the 17 
year patent, in contrast to the 95+ year copyright.
