Copyright vs. Community
by Matt Lee published Aug 11, 2008 last modified Aug 18, 2008 09:54 AM — filed under:
Dunedin, New Zealand. Castle 1, University of Otago (behind the library, off Albany street). Copyright developed in the age of the printing press, and was designed to fit with the system of centralized copying imposed by the printing press. But the copyright system does not fit well with computer networks, and only draconian punishments can enforce it. The global corporations that profit from copyright are lobbying for draconian punishments, and to increase their copyright powers, while suppressing public access to technology. But if we seriously hope to serve the only legitimate purpose of copyright--to promote progress, for the benefit of the public--then we must make changes in the other direction.
