Clay Shirky: Why SOPA is a bad idea
Jim, you said "It may be nice that lots of people are listening to and enjoying his music and he is popular. But being popular does not put food on his table." That's exactly what is changing right now: how we are making money. In the past the industry built this system of Copyright and the criminality of copying and sharing. The society shaped itself to this system and we all learned how to make a living from it. But things are changing and people are sharing more and more. We don't live in that same society now. It will make a lot of people uncomfortable and maybe even poor, but there's no going back. So, instead of holding on to a dead body, we should be thinking about ways to reshape ourselves in this new society, creating different ways to profit from it. Because life goes on... and we must adapt with it.
