free culture now or sooncome famine!

i think i had an argt or two in a k-punk comments column abt this, back at the start of the summer: i’m a bit sad the “virtual commons” meme is being declaimed by others as i wanted to COPYRIGHT IT MYSELF BWAHAHA (while writing abt gay pirates blah blah)!!

(i actually saw this for my sins via crooked timber which is as alert to vital stuff in the thinking as it is dedicated to dulling it down in the writing)
