+ - Former GOP Staffer Derek Khanna Speaks on Intellectual Property->

Submitted by cervesaebraciator
cervesaebraciator (2352888) writes "Tim Lee over at Ars Technica recently interviewed Derek Khanna, a former staffer for the Republican Study Committee. As reported on Slashdot, Khanna wrote a brief suggesting the current copyright law might not constitute free market thinking. He was rewarded for his efforts with permanent time off of work. Khanna continues to speak out about the need for copyright reform as well as its potential as a winning electoral issue and, according to Lee, he's actually beginning to receive some positive attention for his efforts. "I encourage Hill staffers to bring forth new ideas. Don't be discouraged by the potential consequences," Khanna told Ars. "You work for the American people. It's your job, your obligation to be challenging existing paradigms and put forward novel solutions to existing problems." Would that more in both major parties thought like this."
