Moral Panics and the Copyright Wars

William Patry

  • You'll never think of copyright the same way again
  • A lively, unflinching examination of the Copyright Wars: the pitched battles over new technology, business models, and most of all, consumers
  • Patry concludes that calls for strong copyright laws, just like calls for weak copyright laws, miss the point entirely: the only laws we need are effective laws, laws that further the purpose of encouraging the creation of new works and learning
