Fundamentally inconsistent

An interview with Mark Pesce:

Copyright law is fundamentally inconsistent with the nature of networks, which seek to replicate any information presented to them. Google, the law courts and even NEWS Corporation can do nothing about this.

I’m hardly the first person to notice this.

The future does not lie with those who would use copyright as an economic cudgel, but rather, with those who use copyright as a lever to work out some other form of advantage.
