General agreement is that copyright law has far exceeded its original intent and that it needs to be scaled back. Pundits wonder why the government fails to do so, instead passing laws that extend copyright. Perhaps it is because it does not affect them. They just don't care. The government of a country is untouchable. An example of this is being played out in New Zealand where Eninem is suing the NZ government for using his song without permission. Who watches the watchers? Who holds a government to account? Why should they even care what this singer does? After all, they pass these laws for people to be held accountable, not politicians.
