No Hands Up

December 22, 2007


“You want a movie or an album. You don’t want to pay for it. So you download it. Who thinks that might be wrong?”

Great short article from David Pogue in the NYTimes describing an experience of changing consumer behavior on copyright infringements during different of his speeches on copyright. Nice anecdote!

And I fully agree with him:

“I do know, though, that the TV, movie and record companies’ problems have only just begun. Right now, the customers who can’t even *see* why file sharing might be wrong are still young. But 10, 20, 30 years from now, that crowd will be *everybody*. What will happen then?”

There definitely is a big generational divide in copyright morality. We have to face it.
