GOP suddenly withdraws intellectual property report (but here it is)

The GOP's Republican National Committee issued a remarkably
interesting brief on intellectual property yesterday -- then suddenly
withdrew it it today!  Why?  Follow the money!  In any case, I
preserved a copy of the original report, and have marked it so that
there can be no confusion about the fact that the RNC has disowned it:

Subject: RSC Copyright PB 

We at the RSC take pride in providing informative analysis of major
policy issues and pending legislation that accounts for the range of
perspectives held by RSC Members and within the conservative
community. Yesterday you received a Policy Brief on copyright law that
was published without adequate review within the RSC and failed to
meet that standard. Copyright reform would have far-reaching impacts,
so it is incredibly important that it be approached with all facts and
viewpoints in hand. As the RSC's Executive Director, I apologize and
take full responsibility for this oversight. Enjoy the rest of your
weekend and a meaningful Thanksgiving holiday....

Executive Director
U.S. House Republican Study Committee
