Take Me to Your LeaderEmail This EntryPrint This Entry
Posted by Donna Wentworth

George Hotelling is batting around a number of ideas about how to jumpstart copyright activism:

"What we are missing are two things: a leader to organize the fight and a coherent movement to rally around. The Dean campaign had Joe Trippi managing a swarm of volunteers and creating an army from the ground up. We need a Joe Trippi to define our copyfight, to create something that people can say 'I support the copyfight' on their bumper-stickers or their lawns or to their coworkers."

I'll have more to say on this later; for now, check out Mr. Hotelling's post in its entirety, and feel free to share your thoughts.

Money, money, money.

Joe Trippi was taking a cut of every dollar that went through the media part of the Dean campaign, which was most of the dollars. It wasn't an enormous cut. But it wasn't a bad deal either.

I was just telling someone about my DMCA Exemption experience.

Remember why I finally threw in the towel - no money, no press, no lawyers (and a *huge* amount of personal attack and legal risk).

Effective civil-libertarian activism is often much harder than one can imagine :-(.
