The Piracy Crusade
by

Publisher: University of Massachusetts Press
Number of pages: 260

Description:
In The Piracy Crusade, Aram Sinnreich critiques the notion of 'piracy' as a myth perpetuated by today's cultural cartels -- the handful of companies that dominate the film, software, and especially music industries. More troubling, Sinnreich argues, are the broader implications of copyright laws and global treaties that sacrifice free speech and privacy in the name of combating the phantom of piracy.
