The copyright industry should brace itself: the Kim Dotcom saga isn't over

The copyright industry should brace itself: the Kim Dotcom saga isn't over | Copyright, right? | Scoop.it
David Fisher: Kim Dotcom has caused carnage in New Zealand politics, and is set to challenge the music industry with his new website. He personifies the danger technology poses to copyright law
Fenton Reese's insight:

After reading this article, I get slightly uneasy for the future of this industry. This is only an example of the extent of damage that digital immorality can have on the industry. And, as artists and future producers, we need to be aware of these types of things. What we as the future have to understand is that there are only more "Kim Dotcoms" to come. And, by time the industry is in are hands the technology will be even more advanced.

Fresh on the heels of a lawsuit brought against Kim Dotcom by the MPAA film industry lobby, the Megaupload founder is now being sued by the music industry in an action his lawyers are calling “meritless.”
Fenton Reese's insight:

I chose this article because of the in depth look from the Kim Dotcom point of view and the back and forth between him and the accusing organizations. I like the fact that they have the tweets and such which gives the reader a different perspective. It also allows a reader to see what type of person in Dotcom that they are dealing with.
