<nettime> Money and control


This is not about currencies, but, again, about copyright. Maybe pure
capitalism:

What sux most about Disney etc (pars pro toto), is that they identify
control and money. They claim damages, money, that nobody would have
spent. We shouldnt make the same mistake.

Control is ok, GNU etc, as far as money making is concerned. Nobody
makes money out of his files (with maybe exceptions, but are there any
direct profits form P2P or whatever?).

Disney should be happy with getting money, that somebody else made with
their stuff, as far as there is an unfair enrichment.

And, see Sony vs Universal etc (Betamax): de minima non curat.
