The Download Decade Looks at the Ethics of Piracy

The Globe and Mail's Download Decade continues with a look at the ethics of piracy, including a short documentary that asks Canadians to compare copyright infringement with jaywalking and stealing a chocolate bar.  The series also reprints the infamous 2007 Pirates of the Canadians article, which played a crucial role in the lobby efforts to establish anti-camcording legislation in Canada.

    magic of copy is not the evil of move
    If I had a magic wand / star trek food replicator

    no

    copy != move
