My take on DVD Piracy - on Danwei
I don’t believe the Western entertainment business’ hard-line stance on piracy is intractable because of greed or protectionism. I think that they just don’t get it.
One of my favorite websites is Danwei, a Beijing blog about media, advertising and urban life in China, hosted and mostly written by the dashing Jeremy Goldkorn, one of our favorite people, the savvy young South African who runs Danwei, a bright star in the Beijing marketing world.
I'm delighted and honored to tell you that Danwei's just published one of my articles about IP and media counterfeiting, Music and Movie Piracy: If you can't lick 'em, which offers some modest and immodest proposals about how to rethink this phenomenon. Have a look and if you like, come back here and comment. (Danwei doesn't feature comments).
It's worth a look if even only to see the hilarious caption of the photo he chose as an illustration.
Mainer, New Yawka, Beijinger, Californian, points between. News, views and ballyhoos that piqued my interest and caused me to sigh, cry, chuckle, groan or throw something.
