Copyright vs. Community

by Matt Lee Contributions Published on Oct 22, 2007 03:23 PM
Detailed location: Unieuro Library, SCES trecho O, Conjunto 5, Avenia das Nacoes, CEP 70.200-001, Brasilia, Brazil. 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.
