Guess which candidate wants to crack down on your illegal music downloading

by

Philebrity has a nice little feature with the Colbert-esque name of Technologicology in which Brian James Kirk breaks down some of the latest trends in technology.

Anyway, in the first of series of examinations of the presidential candidates, he takes an in-depth look at Barack Obama’s plan to bring America up to speed in the digital age – covering issues like net neutrality, infrastructure and America’s competitiveness in a digital world.  (In other words, his plan to make bloggers like me able to earn a better living from this thing called the internet.)

Of course, Kirk’s write up has just the right dose of that snark and irreverence that (a) I can’t pull off and (b) makes me a fan of Philebrity.  For example:

“Improve America’s Competitiveness”
The most compelling part of Obama’s competiveness plan is his devotion to the MPAA and the RIAA in the face of rapidly increasing world-wide piracy. He hopes to rewrite copyright law to stay up with our advancements. Considering that your most active support base is the same kids who continue to rape copyright holders left and right, brave move. Brave move.

And here I am, paying for music on iTunes like a sucker.
