Why I Copyfight
Cory Doctorow, author of Over-Clocked; Futuristic Tales; Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town; and the recently published, Little Brother, writes about copyright issues, for Locus Magazine:
"Culture's imperative is to share information: culture is shared information. Science fiction readers know this: the guy across from you on the subway with a gaudy SF novel in his hands is part of your group. You two have almost certainly read some of the same books, you've got some shared cultural referents, some things to talk about."
