First off, a quick hello to all the people at the first Brighton Bloggers gathering yesterday - always amusing to put faces to names... :)
Second off, I had to mention this post from Tom Chance about the state of apathy amongst people.
"They will only start to care if they suddenly cannot buy a CD, or get prosecuted by a record company for making a copy of a CD to tape for their car, or are directly affected in some similar way, and they find out that WIPO is directly involved in their problems. Then they might get a little angry, in their armchair, about WIPO."
I think he's a bit naive though. Most people will just accept things, even when they're being screwed over. Or maybe I'm just cynical.
