Read Print: Free books online
Read Print has an amazing selection of books, including a number that I thought were still under copyright and therefore couldn’t be put online for free, including 1984 and Ulysses.

tarmle: Burnoff: Part 1 - The Bad Guys Win

Imagine a world without copyright - Editorials & Commentary - International Herald Tribune

Imagine a world without copyright - Editorials & Commentary - International Herald Tribune
This is an interesting article arguing for an end to all copyright law, but I think it’s rather naive in a lot of its reasoning. For instance, it proposes a “one year usefruct” for works that take a large investment of capital (like […]
