which is exactly why we are on this list today. because a few private
entities, with enough commercial power and backed by a limited
monopoly, got together to destroy fair use through technological means
(CSS) and sponsored laws (DMCA).
if they had owed the public due process before taking huge chunks out
of the public domain and the public's rights (fair use, et al), this
would have never happened.
the non-accountability of private entities is exactly what capitalism's
current global crisis is all about.
