    .........ok,

    good night at the pub was is sasha?
    sadly I spent my day recording more fodder for that hack Lessig to liberate me of, and for that other hack dubber (lovely bloke though he is) to tell me how to turn into free love gold. I thought it was tellingly interesting that dubber ran away from the possibility of bumping into mr sharkey, apparently he's not so so confident of his plans for new music strategies past the odd exception, one radiohead wins the battle for him,
    right, can't sleep, got to screen print some t-shirts to pay the rent.

    petticoat

    and you can't talk you big pansy. running off in a tiff every time someone doesn't agree with you :)
    I'm pretty sure if it came to a dress up competition between you and me you'd be the one wearing the petticoat, not that there's anything wrong with that.

    (ps sam f made me say that,)

  • robbery,

    its interest that you see media as 'the same litre of petrol' when it is infact small segments of the cost of that litre of 'petrol' shared over multiple instantiations of it. if it was merely "one litre of petrol' then the cost of that litre would hold the full cost of production, ie many thousands of dollars.

    just wanted to expand that part of the model for pricing of media and spreading cost of production over multiple copies is based on selling a large chunk of them. That cost is not represented by the physical disc or dvd (which obviously does bear some expense to produce but is not really representative of the "value" of the product) , but by the content and the consumption of it.
    Selling second hand media negates that equation as do libraries, loaning one copy to all your friends (essentially a media rental role without the shop or rental fee).
    I guess media have built their failing model to absorb those loop holes even home taping between friends, but the model can't sustain wholesale piracy.

    The library issue (free flow of information issues aside) is an interesting situation. what if all the 140(?) libraries in the country bought one copy each of bone people and loaned that to the remainder of the population till they had all read it. The print run would be 140, and the model for production would fall over. Either the individual price for books would have to go up to cover it or they would have to look at how libraries operated. That hasn't happened of course but its a delicate balance.

  • Dylan Mordaunt,

    There seems to be too many posts to get a grip on the whole discussion at this late stage.

    Whilst approaching copyright, should we not be tackling the issue of 'intellectual property' as a whole- particularly as it relates to biotechnology and pharmaceuticals given the real-world impact which intellectual property rules have on public health?

    I think that's more patent than copyright, but an interesting area that's well out side my field of experience as it would be to many here, but that probably won't stop em telling us how it should be done :)
