Second lockdown starting tonight and I just received these fine books

@kensanata @glenda
in 1980 they were probably not worried about getting caught because of copyright infringement, but because copying was $1 per page.

@benno @glenda also the collecting societies collected money from photocopiers and so making copies for yourself has always been legal, at least that’s the situation in Switzerland.


The collecting societies = reverse Robin Hood. Our li’l sucky garage band paying the big successful acts. I can’t even

@Sandra not sure how efficient they are where you are but here it seems that in addition to everything else, 50% of the money is lost in administration. The main point is, however, that we need to take advantage of all the ways copying is allowed and not be fearful of copyright infringement when there is none.
