Now, my usual commentary on these things is as follows: those who are ignorant of history are doomed to repeat it. So... I am considering writing a short history on piracy and its intrinsic links to capitalism, and then maybe... present alternatives to what's entering play today. If I did so, would anyone want to read it?
Because let's be frank: the technology isn't going away. Either find a way to use it for your benefit, or be crushed by reality. Those are the only two options.
