Re: Breaking DRM to perform "unauthorized repairs"

Copyright is one of the issues both sides agree on. Hollywood is a major contributor to Democrats who doesn't want to see that well dry up, and lots of other business interests make money from longer and stricter copyright, so the Republicans are on-board too. The lack of opposition is why copyright has been extended practically indefinitely, despite that being blatantly unconstitutional. Robbing the public domain while giving nothing back has been highly profitable for Disney and many other mega media corporations.
