Sharing Is Not Piracy

And copying is not theft. Despite intellectual properganda to the contrary.

Update: See Who are You Calling a Pirate?: Shaping Public Discourse in the Intellectual Property Debates, by Christina Mulligan and Brian Patrick Quinn.

Note: The SSRN link is bad at present; I have posted it here with Mulligan’s permission.

So, Stop calling patent and copyright “property”; stop calling copying “theft” and “piracy”. Just. Stop. It.
