Republican staffer Derek Khanna was thrust into the spotlight in December for being fired after submitting a controversial brief
titled: Three Myths about Copyright Law and Where to Start to Fix it
. In the brief Khanna said: "Current copyright law does not merely distort some markets – rather it destroys entire markets," a view not very popular with Republicans in the House of Representatives. Since the firing, Khanna has continued to speak out on the need for copyright reform

. Derek has graciously agreed to take some time to answer your questions about copyright reform and IP law. As usual, ask as many questions as you'd like
, but please, one question per post.
