Copyright Technology, Gangnam Style

Bill Rosenblatt, Scripting News, Nov 21, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I don't know whether Bill Rosenblatt realized the irony of his own words in this paean to Korean copyright compliance, but I'll reorder a couple of sentences to make it clear: "This is what happens when a government not only pays lip service to copyright but also puts its money where its mouth is... perfectly groomed K-Pop starlets performing on the MTV Korea broadcast." I know Rosenblatt is trying to credit Korea's media "perfect storm" on copyright compliance, but in fact (as we all know) Korean technology and media were successful before any sort of copyright clampdown; stringent copyright protection entrenches existing industries, it doesn't create them.
