There are a lot of crazies out there running for president, “a lot” meaning, as of today, 1030 on the Federal Election Commission list. You can include me in that group (18 alphabetical spots above Hilary, 35 below Jeb).
When I heard that anyone can register to run for president, I figured why not? And why not run on my personal obsession, namely copyright protection. That’s the only plank in my party’s platform. Well, actually, I don’t have a party, at least not a political one. Don’t talk to me about health care, foreign policy, or climate change, I’m a one-issue guy. You could say copyright trumps all other topics.
The campaign is a big joke, but copyright infringement is a serious problem. My hope is to bring a little more attention to the issue, which affects artists, companies and employees all over the world. Thanks to Art World News for their over-generous coverage, and to people with nothing better to do than check out the campaign’s Facebook page.
So far no debates have been scheduled against other officially registered candidates like Limberbutt McCubbins and Sydneys Voluptuous Buttocks. No matter who you vote for in the presidential election, always vote for copyright protection!
