Yeah, I was hoping for a bit more of a discussion around the points raised, as they are interesting and important.

It's also interesting that no one on the 'information wants to be free' side has come right out and said that they download illegal material, or even tried to make the argument that it's not illegal (as some deluded Pirate Party types try - and fail - to claim).

Perhaps they're ashamed now they've realised the disrespect it shows to the creators whose work they enjoy enough to steal, but not to pay for.


On the plus side, I enjoyed Terence's optical theremin idea. Though I think he might be infringing some of John Cage's alleatoric music concepts! 😉
