author’s have no clue

Cologne based Comic artist Miguel E. Riveros Silva made his point in the recent German debate on author’s rights, in an article in the well recommended newspaper ‘Die Zeit’.

He demands that non copy- alterable file formats have to be invented (in his case a work title could be pfd…) and that ISPs and hosting services are in charge to enforce author’s rights.

Web browsers should open with a splash page telling users that copyright infringements are illegal.

Yip – sounds like a plan. And I always thought the tech side has no clue how author’s rights work…
