Copywrite

December 6, 2006

The Internet has at last liberated individuals to find their own voice without the oppressive authority of editors who lose money if a spade is called a spade. Since this is the case, I am surprised at the number of people who post in anger to chat rooms. They are free. Do they not feel free?

I have been thinking about this, coming from a site that should be abuzz with lively discussion. It is not. The editorial policy includes a clause that the moderators may use subscriptions by posters in any context they choose, without asking permission.

That site is preternaturally quiet. Too quiet….
