(Falkvinge 2012) The copyright industry: a century of deceit


Falkvinge, Rick. The copyright industry: a century of deceit. Falkvinge on Infopolicy. 2012 Jan 27. Available from: http://falkvinge.net/2012/01/27/the-copyright-industry-a-century-of-deceit/. Accessed 2012 Jan 27. Archived by WebCite at http://www.webcitation.org/6502pGn96.

Falkvinge documents the pattern, repeated throughout more than 100 years, of industries based on copyright-protected content reacting to the introduction of new copying technology by demanding that it be subjected to new legal restrictions and new types of fees, based on the (invariably false) claim that their industries would otherwise be destroyed.
