Author’s rights debate gains momentum

A group of authors set up a page explaining the author’s (or at least some) view of the recent debate.

In stilted speech they go ‘with concern and incomprehension we witness the public attacks against author’s rights. Author’s rights are a historical accomplishment  of civil freedom against feudal dependencies and it grants the material basis of individual intellectual work.’

phew – elaborated, wicked.

Anonymous, as a reaction published a list of artists involved – like Charlotte Roche, Sven Regener, Michael Mittermaier or Till Lindemann – with birth dates, private e-mail and postal addresses, phone numbers on pastebin.com. Not Anonymous themselves, but affiliated net activists say: ‘We are file sharers, we fight a copy fight, and we will win’

Anyhow, the best response was delivered by Sascha Kösch of De:Bug magazine, who says ‘with concern and incomprehension we witness the public attacks against the internet. The internet is a historical accomplishment  of civil freedom against feudal dependencies and it grants the immaterial basis of individual intellectual work.’
