Copy, Rip, Burn: The Politics of Copyleft and Open Source

by David M. Berry - £22.99  Pluto Press (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780745324142 | ISBN 10: 0745324142

Anyone can now download music and movies, and access free software online. Big companies are complaining about lost profits, but the individual has never enjoyed such freedom. Digital media is in this way forcing us to rethink the very idea of intellectual property.
 
Berry explores the debate, offering an ideal introduction for anyone not versed in the legalistic and technical terminology that - up until now - has dominated coverage of this issue. He examines the historical development of the free software and open source movements, their politics and their impace, and shows how the ideas that inspired them have begun to influence the wider cultural landscape.
 
This book will appeal to anyone interested in new opportunities for creating a truly independent and democratic media.
