Re: [rumori] gifts + "copyright kids"

As Don pointed out, the gift economy argument isn't going to fly with
Congress. But so what? It still needs to be raised loudly and
clearly so when it comes to arguing for a plan more like Don's, it
looks like you've (we've) made a major concession.

On WNYU yesterday, a representative from the Copyright Society was on
talking about a program they have launched: Copyright Awareness Week.
I don't much about this group, but from the sound of it, and from
their website, it looks like they're basically going to public
schools and scaring the shit out of kids who want to use Harry Potter
images, etc. Depressing.
