Cory Doctorow – Every pirate wants to be an admiral

The good Mr. Doctorow briefly discusses the progression of copying in culture from the earliest silent-movie piano performances to the Net, and how it’s reached a stage where the corporations are strong-arming legislature that will give you three strikes and cut you off if you don’t put your hand in your pocket.

Definitely worth seeing, if only for the grin-inducing progression of Performance-to-Piracy claims :D
