Interesting item from Ars Technica
<http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20061020-8045.html> about a
researcher who was trying to track down video items related to a well-known
incident from 14 years ago. Turns out that the copyright agreements were
locked down so tight that it was virtually impossible to get copies of the
items in question.

The book the article refers to (Lawrence Lessig's "Free Culture") is a
really good read - in fact a must read for anyone interested in freedom and
innovation.

Yes...and this is why people (the "pop" in popular) will resist the
ownership of culture.

The harder the "owners" try to defend what is "theirs" the more the
"pop" will ignore them.

Here's an interesting interview
<http://www.theregister.co.uk/2006/11/03/peter_jenner/> with Peter Jenner,
who has managed Pink Floyd among a bunch of other well-known acts. He
reckons that the major labels have had it and DRM is a waste of time, but
he's no fan of a free-for-all world where artists don't get paid. Instead,
he's got some definite ideas about how things can work without imposing
arbitrary restrictions and ****ing off music fans.
