Good Bad Attitude


I recently came across an excellent essay by Paul Graham. (by way of a post on Slashdot) in it, Paul, the author of Hackers and Painters, discusses why hackers are concerned about recent developments in intellectual property law & civil liberties, and why this is an important warning sign for all of us. Although you can certainly disagree with his conclusions (although I don't), he does make an interesting and novel argument. Check it out.
