The Killing Fields of Free Culture
J.D. Lasica has written a vivid expose of the tragic story of Jed Horowitz, former owner of Video Pipeline and Willful Infringement documentarian:
"My mother was a children's librarian, and she imbued me with a world view that culture is a conversation, that you don't own stories, you share them," he tells me. "What has happened over the past few decades is that culture has become privatized to the point where we're now facing a crisis. We need to remember we can still quote and sample, we still have fair use. As a free culture, we're still allowed to do things without permission."
