The Internet Needs to be Free

Like Spiderman*, the new Batman movie illustrates the world that copyright maximalists want us to live in: one where we watch the same handful of movies over and over again. Less competition and tighter corporate control means the culture industry makes more profit.

The Internet Defense League is a network of people and sites who use their massive combined reach to defend the open internet and make it better. Because it can sound the alarm quickly to millions of users, people are calling it “a bat-signal for the Internet”.
