Thought Of The Day

The fight against piracy isn't so much a fight for royalties as it is a fight to control information.

No, it's almost certainly about royalties, because the major actions in pretty much all copyright/piracy models and measures are aimed at things that aren't, in fact, actually information: music, video games, movies, etc. The things that actually contain information -- textbooks, for example -- are usually left on the sidelines in these discussions, and generally have already set up perfectly good guidelines on fair use (see the ones in libraries, for example).
