Copyright, IPR, and no excuses

thanks to Vince Smith who bestowed me with James Boyle's latest book "The Public Domain", I cam across a very positive statement which confirms an answer I gave at the recent e-biosphere meeting in London, when somebody in the audience made the point, that laws are here to be followed:

"Contrary to what everyone has told you, the subject of intellectual property is both accessible and interesting: what people can understand, they can change - or pressure their legislator to change." [bold by me]

This should be one of the imperatives of the biodiversity community!
