Copyright, Philosophy, Law, and Virtual Worlds

Alphaville Herald has an article up this morning: Hacktivism, Governance, and Copyright Debates 4chan Style. This is an interesting spin on ideas many of us consider fixed. In regard to copyright, and actually most of government, it should be no surprise things simply don’t work well (A good reason for small government). The problems created by corporate influence on lawmakers and the lack of intellectual ability and foresight among politicians is reaching some critical mass. For those seeing issues with a philosophical and intellectual interest beyond situational ethics the Alphaville Herald article is well worth the read.
