Orson Scott Card: MP3s Are Not the Devil
Great article by Orson Scott Card (author of the SciFi novel Ender's Game) about the music companies suing kids for sharing MP3's. In short:
(...) the people complaining about all the internet "thieves" are, by any reasonable measure, rapacious profiteers who have been parasitically sucking the blood out of copyrights on other people's work.
The author explains why and how copyright laws were created, and how they were used by publishers to make more profits at the expense of creators and customers.
