The New York Times Sunday Review has an interesting article on piracy. They invoke the common metaphor of Whac-A-Mole and conclude that Internet piracy is not going away and that the content industry is fooling themselves to believe otherwise. They suggest that maybe it’s time to move on and find a new business model.
None of this is news to Irreal readers, of course, but it’s significant because the very epicenter of the establishment media is promulgating these views. Perhaps there’s hope after all.
Even though you won’t find any new ideas, I urge you to read the article if only because it’s so satisfying to hear these things from the content establishment.
