deviantART, Do you support it? Let's think for a moment. Would you want your government to take your personal information without your knowledge? I definitely wouldn't want that. But there are some people who support that notion. The bill CISPA (Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act) would allow the government to do that very thing. Not fair, right? I would not support this bill even if I was paid a million bucks. But that may not be true for you guys though. Who knows maybe after you finish this essay you would actually support the bill, but maybe not. As I go through this essay I will explain my reasons for why I disagree with CISPA, along with examples/evidence. I will also be giving the view of the people who agree with CISPA. You probably would be thinking. "Wait a second, who would agree with CISPA?" Well you'll find that out around the end of this essay. So now moving onto the essay!

propagating like a hungry empire of weeds in our facsimile of The Garden, predictable evidence of my
rampant absorption of the day’s official thought which you leave snowing across the network, pulling up
our strings so we all can dance alike, magnificent fools that flash through copper veins in the wrists of
the machine. I worry that despite all your efforts, you’ll be paid no indemnity against the outcome of
my confessions, my bouts of irrational exuberance and subsequ
Why Copyright Law is a Matter of PerceptionWhy Copyright Law is a Matter of Perception
Most people will argue that copyright is a law to protect artists and has nothing to do with perception, but this is just half the truth. This post will shed some light about common misconceptions*.
First off, this topic came up in a conversation about copyright, artwork licensing and a debate on how to solve issues with a client. Actually the essence of my thoughts are packed into the following post.
To begin with, I´d like to state that I´m an artist and have a sincere interest to protect my work as much as anyone else, but I don´t trust copyright or Creative Commons for that matter, the lines are too blurry and the jurisdiction is often very incomprehensible.
There is a German law that states:"The freedom of any person is untouchable", I´m sure every federation, regardless if Europe or r
