Copyright is a constitutional privlege, not a right.  Sonny Bono fought to
extend copyright further overextend beyond the limitations required by the
constitution, thus denying the public the right to it's own culture in a
reasonable timeframe.  Attempting to force society against it's values for
your own benefit (let's not forget Bono was for quite some time quite
deeply embedded in the entertainment industry's pockets) is terrorism.

I think you're confusing liberals and conservatives with the much more
narrowly defined Democrats and Republicans.  I'm a Democratic Socialist. 
My party has little to do with the Demublicans.
