You needed factories to produce music, but as this got cheaper enforcement cost went up.
You want attention and money, but if you sue your customer you lose them. Calling them thieves does also not help.
Internet and PCs are the most powerful copy machines.
Technology not only benefits the roducers but also enables the consumers to copies.
Traditional media will become dinosaurs.
There were initiatives to make the Internet a worse copying machine. (DRM)
Crypto systems are no longer secrets. Secrets only keep out ppl who are more stupid than you.
Publishing cryptosystems makes sure tht they are relly secret. (vgl bumpkeys for locks)
DRM only gets on the nerves of people who buy media.
Mueslix64 had problems playing his dvd and extracted and published the key.

You can break that easily.
You would need real artificial intelligence (filters) to really control content. But AI would be used for more interesting stuff.
You cannot even filter spam, so how would you filer pirated content?
Scientology and others claim copyright when stuff is published about them, it fosters censorship.
DRM, filtering and takedown failed.
3 strikes: take the users offline.
No judge, no jury, just complaints.
The internet delivers not only copies but freedom.
If you can wither shoot 300 million Dollar movies or the iternet: shoot the 300 dollar movies.
Pay for quoting news: It is not news it is a secret.
Country blocking will only be against the interest of the users.
DRM does not prevent copies. It makes our devices work against their users. It is a bug, not a feature.
DRM is the "self destruct button" for devices: it works against the users.
3 strikes would be a death sentence for companies.
- stop pretending that you can make money with media (90% of artists with a record deal make less than 600 dollars a year.. In the late 90ies)

- copyright is to assure participation in culture, not profit for companies
The main aspect of the internet is not copying but collaboration.
This makes "superhuman" works: more than one person could do. (cf: "the nature of the firm")
The cost of collaboraion is the key factor of every enterprise.
Wikipedia, Linux,Tagging/Flickr (collaboration by chance, emergence), links (Googlebot, pagerank-emergence),
Almost eveything on the internet is shit, which is great, as it shows you can "fal cheaply" now -- but you can also find an audience and succeed.
Media companies now can develop a "Fingerspitzengefuehl" about how their content is doing. And we all know about how our stuff is used.
Change is now a constant in media.
Doctorow puts his books online for free in CC as soon as they come out.

The network will not change to suit you.
Make media that does not die in the face of copying.
BoingBoing is very cheap to produce. 6 meetings and 9 phonecalls. Just server and bandwidth.
If you nake 300 million dollar movies you might not have a business.
Technology created the recording industry and it will take it away.
Lutheranism did not kill religion - just no more cathedrals were built.
Media power is decentralized.
