Falkvinge, Rick. It’s time to go on the offensive for freedom of speech. TorrentFreak. 2012 Jan 22. Available from: http://torrentfreak.com/its-time-to-go-on-the-offensive-for-freedom-of-speech-120122/. Accessed 2012 Oct 24. Archived by WebCite at http://www.webcitation.org/6BfCTXJaO.
Falkvinge makes the case that freedom of expression cannot be secured against repressive legislation like DMCA, SOPA, PIPA, and ACTA by a purely defensive strategy executed in the face of well-funded and persistent efforts by industries that profit from intellectual property monopolies. Falkvinge urges instead that we adopt an offensive legislative strategy of actively rolling back intellectual property monopolies. Although he opposes all monopolistic intellectual property restrictions on principle in the long run, in the interest of making progress he proposes an interim strategy that would allow some copyright monopolies to continue to exist, while rolling back the most repressive aspects of current intellectual property law.
