Nesson in Conclusion
CN: There’s a tendency to think that law is noble And it may be in some way. But as you drop down to the actual process, law is advocacy taken to extreme limits, devoid of wisdom. The general of the US considers it to be her job to advocate to extreme, zealous limit of her client, so that you have the attorney for the US making the most extreme argument to support some interpretation of her statue.
The idea of a lawyer is not that he’s standing in judgment of the president. It’s to write an opinion that says you can do it. That’ s the advcocacy you get from a corprate lawyer getting corporate interest. Copyright advocated to the max in terms of their client. The max in terms of the breath that spent in putting that argument out. THe notion of the open space, the adversary of peer-to-peer file sharing, the open net, when you see that adversary up against a remarkable a remarkably empowered force, then it calls upon the open net to begin to become itsels, self-awaye, and to aggreagate its powers so that it resists…the industry has been effective in persuading users to think downlaoding music is theft. ion
The industry has been succesful in making that notion seem wrong. But what I come down to, as far as Joel is conerned. Joel is a digital native. In a tremedously excited environment, he is not sorry or remorseful. This is “what a redblooded kid would be doing” and milions of his peers did it. But this rhetoric blames him, in moral way, makes him a thief. Says he should feel guilty for what he did without any trial by jury. That’s not fair.
