Freeloading, by Chris Ruen
Available from OR Books at a $10 recommended price.
From the website:
'Internet piracy: it’s an eternal battle pitting indies versus corporations, free spirits against the money-grubbing Scrooge McDucks of the world.
Sort of, sometimes—maybe not. Freeloading takes a critical, cool look at a near-pervasive phenomenon that involves almost everyone who taps a keyboard: beyond that, it's a reminder of the truism that for every action there are consequences. What happens when we pirate a favorite work of art—a song, book, or movie? And as importantly: what, if anything, can or should be done about it?
Internet piracy has created unlikely allies. On the one hand, there are original creators of content, including artists and corporate copyright holders—on the other, legions of freespirited consumers who see themselves in the hacker/OWS tradition.'
