Punk Capitalism!

I am pretty sure the word ''Punk'' still irritates a lot of people's ears/minds. In our - not so - distant past, the Punk movement/art started rising in the US, UK and beyond, shouting against the established social hierarchies and old ways of thinking and doing things. The book by Matt Mason is a must for those who worry about their business models being threatened by modern ''Pirates'' and for those that Piracy represents the new wave, the new wind of change both for the digital and physical worlds and markets. Here's an interesting excerpt from the book that I chose to share with you for your personal introspection:

''Throughout the time I've been groping around cyberspace, an immense, unsolved conundrum has remained at the root of nearly every legal, ethical, governmental, and social vexation to be found in the Virtual World. I refer to the problem of digitized property. The enigma is this: If our property can be indefinitely reproduced and instantaneously distributed all over the planet without cost, without our knowledge, without its even leaving our possesion, how can we protect it? How are we going to get paid for the work we do with our minds? And, if we can't get paid, what will assure the continued creation and distribution of such work? Since we don't have a solution to what is a profoundly new kind of challenge, and are apparently unable to delay the galloping digitazion of everything not obstinately physical, we are sailing into the future on a sinking ship''
