Alan Story: The True Danger of Intellectual Property 3

“When copyright owners use copyright to threaten manufacturers of recording
technologies, raise the price of educational material to libraries and universities, keep material out of the public domain with long copyright terms, our interests in being able
to exchange, access and discuss information are the subject of interference.” – page 4

“The exchange, circulation and communication of information amongst
people is fundamental to the way a democracy works. The more power
over the price of information a society places in the hands of intellectual
property owners, the more it checks its citizenry from informing itself.” – page 4
