The net crusader: John Perry Barlow
However, another worry is what will be lost in the meantime. "If we stick to this model for a period of time a lot of the work that we have done during the last 150 years is going to be lost if the content companies don't permit it being digitised," he says, pointing out that far from letting go of rights, media companies are using digital media to reclaim them. "If you download an ebook of Alice in Wonderland, which is in the public domain, it actually says in the small print that you can't read it out aloud."
"We saw a lot of this happening during the heyday of Napster. People were taking LPs and ripping the vinyl on to their PCs and a lot of those records I really want to see make the cut. The companies that produce those LPs hadn't sold any of them for years and had no intention of selling them but were stopping them doing it," he says.
Believing that the internet community has a three-year window to take the good fight to the content owners, Barlow doesn't intend to quit now. "What I do about it is go around and try and tell as many people as possible that something serious is taking place and they should be aware. Eventually, the truth will out. That's all I know to do," he says.
