Copyright laws don’t work in the digital age – POLITICO

An interesting piece on the ongoing struggle between copyright legislation and the notion of the ‘open’ internet:

“Copyright laws weren’t created for the digital age. Technology and internet connectivity have radically changed the production of cultural material — and it is easier than ever for an individual to have an idea, record it in words, images or sound and then release it to the world. In this kind of environment, copyright reform is crucial — but is still not being implemented rigorously enough.”
