Cory Doctorow: Why I Copyfight

Cory Doctorow, einer der Autoren von BoingBoing, schreibt darüber, dass Kopieren zum Wesen unserer Kultur gehört.

Culture’s old. It’s older than copyright.

The existence of culture is why copyright is valuable. The fact that we have a bottomless appetite for songs to sing together, for stories to share, for art to see and add to our visual vocabulary is the reason that people will pay money for these things.

Let me say that again: the reason copyright exists is because culture creates a market for creative works. If there was no market for creative works, there’d be no reason to care about copyright.

René hat es auch gefunden. Längst, natürlich.

    Was ist an dem Zitat neu oder großartig und vor allem: Was will er damit sagen?

    Die deutsche Übersetzung von Doctorows Buch „Little Brother“ ist beinahe fertig. Alles weitere direkt beim Übersetzer Christian Wöhrl.
