On Copyright

Mark Helprin, published author of “Digital Barbarism,” today wrote a fantastic piece in the Wall Street Journal on digital copyright and the fact artists must fight back. His closing paragraph sums up his thoughts, but the whole piece is well worth a read.

Closing Paragraph: New technologies will always demand and deserve careful navigation and difficult readjustments. But the weakening or de facto abolition of copyright will not merely roil the seas, it will drain them dry. Those who would pirate what you produce have developed an elaborate sophistry to convince you that they are your victim. They aren’t. Fight back.
