Librarian of Alexandria

Quotes

Every time I write about the impossibility of effectively protecting digital files on a general purpose computer, I get responses from people decrying the death of copyright. How will authors and artists get paid for their work? they ask me. Truth be told, I don't know. I feel rather like the physicist who just explained relativity to a group of would-be interstellar travelers, only to be asked: How do you expect us to get to the stars, then? I'm sorry, but I don't know that, either.

—Bruce Schneier
