Debating with Pirates #3

Here’s a long and thorough demolition of the absurd idea that copyright is an affront to democracy. A notion dreamed up by knuckleheads to excuse their own rapacious sense of entitlement.

“There is a very loud minority online, mostly male, 18 to 35, who believe they have a right to dictate to another sector of society, the creative community. They demand the power to set the price of content, when and where they access it. While they claim it’s a democratic right, when democracy gives them the chance to vote for greater digital rights and even dismantled copyright, less than 1% vote for it.”
