Crosbie Fitch: Questioning Copyright
>>Will we ever learn to respect copyright?>>
Mankind’s cultural liberty is primordial.
Our liberty, our natural right, our power and need to copy has never left us.
Our right to copy may have been annulled by Queen Anne, but youngsters are finding out every day that they innately possess the ability and instinctive need to share and build upon their own culture.
We will never learn not to copy, because to learn is to copy, and we will never stop learning.
Copyright is a historical accident, a legislative error made in a less principled era.
It is time to rectify that error, not the people.
