A posting by Chris Lightfoot from 2002 entitled – Content providers and content consumers: a cynic’s view.
“This, to my mind, is the core point of this dispute: the majority of content consumers don’t care about free software, cryptography, the availability of general purpose computers, the power of large corporations or the principle that `it’s my stuff, I’ll do what I damn well like with it’. These are minority issues. But everyone likes to get something for nothing. The status quo makes doing this illegal, but so what?”
