"As the Internet dog wags its long tail, digital copyright is right there tugging at its lead. Copyright content of every description is shared, mashed, borrowed and adapted on the network. Digital citizens complain that copyright law is no longer fit for purpose in this new world. On the other hand, copyright owners complain about piracy and illegal file sharing. In this blog, we will disentangle the issues and look at what’s really going on in the wacky world of copyright."
