Yes, well, the Boston Globe thinks I should pay them $2.95 for the privilage
of reading this article.
I know there are people on this list who feel strongly about copyright
protection generally and such, but I thought this was ... a sad example of
the diminishing access to content on the net.
Of course if I had looked at that link sooner...
Now, a few days ago, I posted an entire article/review from the Boston Globe
here to the list.
I suppose after 30 days, it's presence in the archives here will be
technically in violation of the Globe's copyright?
The proposed Total Information Awareness legislation would make all of our
personal information fair game for the government to access, in the name of
ntional security, while information owned by corporations is tightly
protected. Why is it so important?
Saruman could no doubt explain all this quite eloquently.
I don't want to wander further off theme here than I already perhaps have
done, so I will not comment further on this point, but will listen if anyone
else has thoughts to add.
