I don't know whether you're being deliberately obtuse, or I'm having particular difficulty in getting my point across. I suspect the former, but just in case it is the latter, let me have one more go.

1. Existing copyright law gives an acceptable level of protection for works. We do not need longer copyright terms, further restrictions on what people can and can't legally do with copyrighted works, etc. The current law is fine in that regard.

2. There is no good method for content creators to prosecute people who infringe their rights. The only recourse is civil prosecution. This is extremely expensive for both the rights holder and the offender. We need a low-cost, quick, system to settle these cases which doesn't result in ruinous costs for both sides.

If you still don't understand what I'm trying to say, then I'm not going to waste my time and yours by explaining further.
