The Culture of Sharing: Why Releasing Copyright Will Be the Smartest Thing You

,----[ Quote ]
| Last year I Uncopyrighted my blog, Zen Habits, and my ebook, Zen To Done, and 
| it was one of the best things I’ve ever done. People have used my articles in 
| blogs, newsletters, magazines, ebooks, books and more. And yes, they’ve made 
| profits off me without me getting any of that money … but at the same time, 
| I’ve benefitted: my ideas have spread, my name and brand have spread, and my 
| readership has grown and grown. Since I Uncopyrighted the blog, it has grown 
| from about 30K subscribers to 113K.      
| You can Uncopyright your blog, your ebooks, and even your print books. And I 
| can almost guarantee you: it’ll be the best thing you can do as a writer.

Google Italy explains how Google is different from The Pirate Bay

,----[ Quote ]
| Someone at Google is pissing their pants.
|     * the file format thing can be said of The Pirate Bay as well
|     * The Pirate Bay has not the financial means to create a removal workflow 
|       like Google 
|     * The Pirate Bay removes the contents, it just does when Police asks, as 
|       it should be. It doesn’t take the right to judge. Exactly as it should 
|       be.  
|     * the quote of Mazza is just a black on white judgement, without any 
|       argument supporting his claims. 
|     * everyone knows YouTube mades his fortune closing a eye on illegal 
|       content, until it really was forced to remove it. 
|     * misuse of google is easily done, and I can’t see Google be willing to 
|       stop that anytime. Now, mr Kennedy try to type Coldplay there. What do 
|       you get ? Or type coldplay torrent in google.  
| Differences may exist. But you seem not to know those.
