Re: <nettime> Vice > Peter Sunde > I Have Given Up

Equating 'freedom' with 'right' to consume unpaid commercial content was the biggest meme hijack of the decade. It reminds of the sinister side of some hippie communities, where 'free love' was used to excuse rape.

The worst part is that 'free' re-distribution of the commercial content causes exposure to trash of those who could not afford to pay for it, and would otherwise be spared.
