I’ve been working in Boston lately and I’ve seen the original posters and done my share of sneering. And I’ve grown increasingly annoyed at what I have to sit through in the movie theater after paying for my tickets.
I do wonder what the right mix should be between education, ridicule, and civil disobedience toward industries struggling to hold off the future. Why is it that reasoned discourse seems the least likely alternative?
Parody of copyright billboard. Cory Doctorow: While in Boston for WorldCon, I spotted these copyright warning posters in the lighted advertising podium. Trevor points to a much better parody. Link (Thanks, Trevor!)
