Matt Mason’s Piracy Dilemma

I read The Pirate’s Dilemma by Matt Mason sometime last year and really enjoyed it.  He just posted a presentation he did recently at Incubate 2010 that summarizes a lot of the book on his blog and I wanted to pass it around for discussion.  I think he does a great job at balancing the fact that we do need intellectual property laws, but that laws aren’t going to stop piracy.  Things like open source and Creative Commons licenses are just market reactions to bad IP laws in some sense.  People are looking for better and easier ways to share, collaborate, remix and join in a conversation with you and your organization.  Take advantage of that as we move into a new era of communication by using and contributing to open source and Creative Commons projects.
