Hooray! My letter to the editor in praise of Dick Armey’s moral defense of intellectual property was published in The Washington Times today:

Sing a song

Thanks to Dick Armey (“Airing on free use,” Commentary, Friday) for defending intellectual property in broadcast radio as a matter of justice to the creators.

Today’s producers of music–artists, management and record companies–offer consumers around the world a vast array of music for all tastes. Those producers deserve to be rewarded handsomely for their efforts, not cheated of royalties by legal loopholes for broadcast radio or online file sharing.

Without the producers of music, we’d be stuck listening to our own off-key shower singing.

Normally, I prefer to focus my activism efforts on local papers, but that was too good an opportunity to pass by. Paul also published a letter to the editor on health care in The Christian Science Monitor last Friday. Hooray FIRM!
