An Opinionated Primer that provides an excellent overview of current copyright issues concerning access to laws for intelligent people who have inexplicably failed to devote their lives to the study of copyright law. Via Laboratorium, via Froomkin.

    Great overview and histotical tracking explaining, to all people, not just feminists, how copyright evolved. First a protective layer of law was created, which contained certain self protecting aspects, to foster creation and discourse. The self protections transformed the intent, it seems, along the way. The power of thought and protection of labor is now more about political and monetary control, and benefit, than anything. Copyright’s power is used to lock up the wealth of civilization, control access, and in general, keep civilization fragmented. Power of the highest magnitude for sure.
