Patry's MORAL PANICS AND THE COPYRIGHT WARS: elegant, calm, reasonable history of the copyfight

,----[ Quote ]
| Few people are as qualified to write a book about the copyright 
| wars as William Patry: former copyright counsel to the US House 
| of Reps, advisor the Register of Copyrights, Senior Copyright 
| Counsel for Google, and author of the seven-volume Patry on 
| Copyright, widely held to be the single most authoritative work 
| on US copyright ever written.


Werewolf - Release Canceled Due to Music?

,----[ Quote ]
| Editorial: It's a shame that two songs can wreck an entire 
| project, but at the same time it's good to see Shout! 
| sticking to their guns. Releasing a hacked up set would only 
| anger fans of the show and blame would be focused at Shout! 
| Factory. Now the blame will be upon the companies/bands that 
| own the impossible-to-license songs for their inability to 
| work things out. It's just sad that fans won't be able to 
| enjoy the show on DVD, and Shout! Factory is likely out time 
| and money they spent working on this release.



Interview With William Patry: Understanding How The Copyright Debate Got

,----[ Quote ]
| I think that is no more valid a response than those who offered by
| filesharers who argue that its OK for them to do what they are doing because
| the labels screw the artists. Not only does iTunes refute the idea that
| people just want free stuff, but look at what happened in January of this
| year when Monty Python started a YouTube channel and gave away free streams
| of their stuff: their DVD sales on Amazon.com went up 23,000% (not a typo).
| Here's another example. My wife owns a cafe. She makes espresso there and the
| guy who makes it used to work at Starbucks. I obviously can get espresso for
| free there. But I don't, I drive two miles away to a Starbucks store and pay
| $2.01 for it because I like the way it tastes.
