"In the pages that follow, I try to show that current
intellectual property policy is overwhelmingly and tragically bad
in ways that everyone, and not just lawyers or economists, should
care about. We are making bad decisions that will have a negative
effect on our culture, our kids' schools, and our communications
networks; on free speech, medicine, and scientific research. We are
wasting some of the promise of the Internet, running the risk of
ruining an amazing system of scientific innovation, carving out an
intellectual property exemption to the First Amendment. I do not
write this as an enemy of intellectual property, a dot-communist
ready to end all property rights; in fact, I am a fan. It is
precisely because I am a fan that I am so alarmed about the
direction we are taking."
