An writer makes his own case
This book is written with all of the brilliance in language and turn of phrase thak characterizes his fiction. Good thing, too, because as such it is an illustration of the improtance of supporting literary creativity. More than simply advancing his cause, he makes you think about where we are headed with the digital revolution. Now that I've read it, I'm going to get the book so I can slowly savor some of his brillaint insights.
Listen to your Grandpa, you might learn something.

Didn't like it
I was really looking forward to reading this book and hearing good arguments about Anti-Piracy, but thats nto what this book was about. It was more about why copyrights were important. In doing so thought it did not give a good impression on why Piracy was a real issue. The book spent a lot of time going over things that didn't seem to have anything to do with the argument at all. I'd say it felt like 75% of the book felt unnecessary.
Also the author stoops to the pirates level and does some name calling when reffering to them. I understand that he might have been a little hurt by all of the negative comments he had previously recieved in his articles, but it doesn't look good to me when your trying to take the moral high road, and still trying to insult others with immature name calling.
