Too many lobbyists, not enough strategists

A bit of pithy insight from the latest EDRIgram: "the intellectual property lobby employs too many lobbyists and too few strategists." In other words, Big Content can get lawmakers to do their bidding, even when doing so discredits them and riles up the opposition. (via Beyond the Beyond)


  1. Based on the complexity(and, so far, general success) of their plans, I have to wonder if the problem is lack of strategists, or rather a reasonably competent roadmap being raced down at near-suicidal speed by malignant, black-hearted scum wholly dominated by avarice and hubris.

    So long as “must assure constant victory and every greater control” is treated as an axiomatic element of any strategy, no strategist in the world can save you from the fact that sooner or later people are going to lose patience with you, because your ‘strategy’ demands their subjection to ever greater demands.
