I really wish the sea werent so filled with muck in the matter- Google and the big aggregators are certainly not on the sides of the copyright holders. It feels very much like a dip into NYC or Chicago power politics. And it should be a simple enough matter for the government to efficiently draw laws which are technology independent and are more concerned with protecting the idea instead of the bits and bytes. And it certainly shouldnt require 200 million dollars worth of lobbying to get it done.
