A pirate's life is not easy

Galley Cat had a piece on piracy - Matt Mason's short vid called "Pirate's Dilemma".

It's refreshing to see people question the whole digital rights, intellectual property issue. Mason's right; it's through efforts like derivative work or 'borrowing' that you end up developing the next big thing.

I like that bit which implied acts of piracy as the origins of some bits Hollywood industry. How the world has changed, huh?
