Tales From the Public Domain: Bound by Law? Trapped in a Struggle She Didn’t Understand
Source: Duke Center for the Study of the Public Domain
This is an informative comic book on Copyright and the Public Domain.
This is a sensible book about a ridiculous subject. It’s an example of the principle it illustrates: that taking from the culture around us to make new things is what culture is all about, it’s what culture is for. Culture is that which we use to communicate. The comic form makes this issue into something less abstract, more concrete, and the Duke Public Domain folks who produced this have not just written a treatise on copyright, they’ve produced a loving tribute to the form of comics. It’s a book whose time has come. Read it, share it. Get angry. Do something. Document your world.
From the Introduction by Cory Doctorow
