The Copyright Debate
Here’s an idea. How about if I pull an RSS feed from “The Australian”, strip all the adverts from it, repost it in my website where people can read it for free and put my own adverts on it? If there’s no copyright, why not?
Or I could pull RSS feeds from every Lit Blog in the country, use an automatic aggregator and have the best lit blog anywhere, stick some adverts on it and keep all the money. No copyright, who is gonna stop me? Oh that’s right, Google, they have systems in place to stop this from happening.
I own my work. That is all there is to it. I put the work in, the thing I made is mine. The things you make are yours. If you use my work, a simple acknowledgment of that fact is all I ask.
