When Authors Demand Payment For Every Copy, They Advocate Communism - TorrentFreak - 0 views

  •  
    " Rick Falkvinge on December 21, 2015 C: 114 Opinion Yes, really. There's a whole lot of confusion in the dangerous and wrong cliché that "authors must be paid" for every copy that's made. We live in a market economy for good reasons."

  •  
    " Rick Falkvinge on September 13, 2015 C: 53 Opinion Language matters. Whether we get to keep our liberties or not depends on whether those liberties are generally named in positive words. The same thing goes for the privileges of corporations."

Piracy Is Just Another Copyright Industry Scapegoat | TorrentFreak - 0 views

  •  
    " Rick Falkvinge on March 16, 2015 C: 0 Opinion History repeats itself. Unlicensed home manufacturing of copies was never the cause of the copyright industry's business problems; they created those all on their own. It's not the first time they've appointed a scapegoat for their own failures to get public funding, either."

  •  
    " Rick Falkvinge on October 19, 2014 C: 33 Opinion Throughout history, those who have copied the most have also always been the most prosperous, and for that reason. Bans on copying, like the copyright and patent monopolies, are just plain industrial protectionism."

The Net vs. The Power of Narratives | TorrentFreak - 1 views

  •  
    " By Rick Falkvinge on April 29, 2012 C: 76 Opinion The net changes the world's power structures in a much more fundamental way than changing the way a few groups of entrepreneurs are able to make money. The net is the greatest equalizer that humankind has ever invented. It is either the greatest invention since the printing press, or the greatest invention since written language. The battles we see are not a result of loss of money; they are caused by a loss of the power of narratives."

  •  
    " Rick Falkvinge on April 20, 2014 C: 24 Opinion The fundamental problem with the copyright monopoly today is that it can't coexist with private communications as a concept. Our sharing of culture and knowledge happens as part of the private correspondence that leaves our computer, and therefore, the monopoly cannot be enforced as long as private correspondence exists."
