Who’s afraid of copyright?

October 29, 2011 § Leave a comment

So, I found out my alma mater has basically authorized the sale of my work without my permission. This comes just after I lectured a group of undergraduates about plagiarism and copyright infringement. I don’t blame the students for the belief that everything on the Internet, including a novel I’ve worked on for years, is theirs for the taking. How could I when the university believes the same thing? Artists make life livable. Intellectual property is what we make. Don’t steal it and try to profit off of it.
