Mr. Doctorow e-mailed me last night wondering why I had characterized BoingBoing as "hostile to copyright." Perhaps I was going too far into the past, when BoingBoing did include some pretty hostile remarks on copyright as a whole. Further review and reflection, though, makes me think that it is more accurate to say the BoingBoing (and CopyFight) are hostile to current copyright enforcement efforts than to copyright as a whole. Thus, the change. I still think it was accurate originally; but Mr. Doctorow's comment made me realize that there is a better way to characterize BoingBoing today.
See? Occasionally I do listen.
