John Barlow takes on the MAN.

#29333 2 years, 11 months ago
Found this from www.jerryradio.com... Thank you Bilbo.

John Barlow at the e-G8 conference, sitting on a panel of the record/movie moguls who want to control the Internet. You know the people who believe those who deliver creativity should be paid more than those who create.

Pay attention folks....we are coming to the Internet crossroads....and you know who we'll find there.

I think that there is a possibility that those who rely on heavy use will speak up- movie download companies, gaming companies because World of Warcraft will become obsolete if people had to pay. So there's hope I think.
