Wired News: Putting Eyeballs on Copyright Law

The latest issue of Wired News has an article about a civil rights fight over copyright. It builds on something I commented on a few days ago. The article is well worth a read as it brings into sharp focus the issue of copyright and control of history, creativity and the arts by large corporations.

It feels to me like we are on the verge of real change around this whole issue - the challenges of digital media, the democracy of file sharing (see post from a while ago) - it's a question of who will win out on this.

I'm becoming increasingly aware of the whole "Creative Commons" movement. Time to investigate further...
