Robert Levine on copyright protection: Do we want Internet companies to dictate our concept of individual rights?

Robert Levine, author of Free Ride: How Digital Parasites Are Destroying the Culture Business, and How the Culture Business Can Fight Back has spoken to Publishing Perspectives about the launch of the IFRRO Value of Copyright Campaign and the need to protect copyright.

He notes that it has been suggested that the concept of creators’ rights must change in the digital age and agrees that  sensible adjustments to laws are desirable, and in some cases necessary.  However he asks "Do we really want to let technology, let alone Internet companies, to dictate our concept of individual rights? And, if so, what other rights will they try to relieve us of in the future?"
