in the beginning... first CD appeared in 1982 without any kind of copy protection because it was impossible to copy the CDs 700 Mbytes of data: the 1983 IBM PC XT had a 10 Mbytes hard disc – less than one song similarly impossible to share it across the Internet: the Hayes Smartmodem, released in 1981, had a speed of 300 bits/s – about 400 hours to upload one song
...and then... Moores Law MP3 developed in early 1990s, just as Internet was taking off used computation to reduce music file size to 10% of original modem speed then 14.4 Kbit/s – less than one hour to upload/download one MP3 song: slow, but possible Napster (1999)
today Mbit/s broadband connection mean that entire films can now be shared P2P networks like BitTorrent make it even easier to distribute those files and share them in the background 1 terabyte hard disc (1000 gigabytes) costs £/€/$50; stores 150,000 MP3s
tomorrow a 1 petabyte (1000 terabytes) USB stick will cost £/€/$50 and store every song ever recorded in CD quality (no compression) a 1 exabyte hard disc (1000 petabytes) will cost £/€/$50 and store every film ever recorded ultimately be able to share *everything* as easily as sharing one MP3 file in 1995 then what?
war on digital sharing is unwinnable Moores Law is war on abundance artificial scarcity is a war on humanity most people cant access most knowledge is a war on the future a few of those people are the ones who will save us
castles in the air those who talk of "IP" compare copyright infringement with trespass in 20th century, law on trespass radically reshaped by new technology limited by taking away airspace rights
taking flight we need to allow knowledge to pass freely through the digital space "above" analogue objects no digital copyright logically inevitable morally necessary economically sensible
