I love Larry Lessig's latest Wired article entitled, 'A Taste of Our Own Poison. A modest proposal: Hold Hollywood hostage till we kill farm subsidies. The article suggests that developing countries should unite to ignore US intellectual property protection in their countries until the US stops the farm subsidies that are forcing poor countries to destroy unwanted crops. Read this:
A block of powerful developing nations should first take a page from the US Copyright Act of 1790 and enact national laws that explicitly protect their own rights only. It would not protect foreigners. Second, these nations should add a provision that would relax this exemption to the extent that developed nations really opened their borders. If we reduce, for example, the subsidy to agribusiness by 10 percent, then they would permit 10 percent of our copyrights to be enforced (say, copyrights from the period 1923 to 1931). Reduce the subsidy by another 10 percent, then another 10 percent could be enforced. And so on.
I think it's a wonderful idea and probably the only way to really get the US to stop and listen.
