Our second installment is now live!
Episode number two is basically extending the talk about copying vs stealing. It’s been exactly 25 days since our last episode, and just like we promised, we give you “Episode 2: Copying = Stealing?”
Digital property is not a finite resource, and we think it shouldn’t be treated as such. A new copy isn’t taking anything from the initial owner, so maybe this kind of “property” shouldn’t be the same as the property of scarce resources.
Why make separate episodes for just these simple arguments?
Because they’re are basic introductory concepts that feel extremely important and need to be covered at length before heading into deeper waters. Later episodes will cover a lot more ground (& will be longer too), starting with a little bit of copyright history. Having already found out about the copying doctrine, and why it’s not wrong to copy anything, let’s now dig deeper and see if copying is some sort of stealing.
