Cory Doctorow On Intellectual Property In A Digital Age

Cory Doctorow
The following is a recording from Cory Doctorow‘s keynote at The Literary Conference 2014. I highly recommend you give it a listen. He covers a ton of really important stuff for today’s writers including: Amazon/Hachette, DRM, copyright laws, platform channels, privacy, and more. I’ve also appended Doctorow’s 3 Laws below the Soundcloud player.

Doctorow’s 3 Laws

  1. Anytime someone puts a lock on something that belongs to you and won’t give you the key, it’s not there for your benefit.

  2. Fame won’t make you rich but you’ll have a hard time getting sales if no one has heard of you.

  3. Information doesn’t want to be free.
