Got Questions About Copyfraud? Now's The Time To Ask Them!

from the ask-away dept

This month's Techdirt book club book is Copyfraud, by Jason Mazzone. If you missed them, we published some excerpts (part I and part II) earlier this month, and hopefully some of you have had a chance to dig into the full book. Over on our Step2 platform we're collecting questions and voting on them to send to Mazzone to kick off the discussion, which we'll have in a couple of weeks. You can, of course, also ask questions in the comments to this post, but we're using Step2 because it makes it much easier to track which questions get the most votes (and, if you have a login to Techdirt, it works there too, so you don't need to re-register or anything). We look forward to the discussion on this important aspect of copyright law that doesn't get nearly enough attention.

Head to Step2 and submit your questions »

    Question 1: Why do you insist on trying to do this on another chat area? Desperate to get people in the door?

    Question 2: Why are none of these e-books free?

    Re:

    1: Because it isn't. That was Mike's decision.

    2: Because the author (not Mike) decided that they shouldn't be. Take that up with them.

    Re: Re:

    1: Isn't it just a pointless attempt to get people to try the other part of the site, and

    2: Why give space and time to an author that clearly isn't getting the old CwF+RtB thing?

    $23 for the ebook and $27 for the physical copy? Clearly someone doesn't understand the concept of marginal cost. Or you can buy the physical AND ebook for $33. So basically it's just like the *AA: I can pay for the same media multiple times!! Wow!

    Can somebody post a link to the torrent for the book?

    Another great example of "do as I say, not do as I do... Masnick style!"

    Re: Re:

    Yawn. You should probably go read the initial post about the book, in which all this was addressed. Then maybe you can take a day off from whining.

    See how that works?

    I read your blurb about Part III and didn't even open it: just went to Amazon and bought the book for 20-something bucks. Free doesn't pay?

    Copyfraud and Institutions; user agreements vs. privacy

    Consider the case of public institutions holding works in their collections, and imposing user agreements on library patrons, which licensing terms are the equivalent of contracting for the implementation of copyrights for the library. The library has to obtain personal information from these patrons in order to draw up these agreements, in violation of state privacy laws.

    Has anybody ever heard of this argument against those forms for Permission to copy and publish?
