New study: Despite harshened copyright monopoly laws, sharing of culture and knowledge remains pervasive.

The fraction who share culture and knowledge in the age group 15-25 is 61%, and this has remained steady in size over the past three years, despite all the crackdowns. Additionally, when the people who share directly is that high, we are way past the saturation point where the rest benefit indirectly from the sharing.

Some laws need to be subverted, then repealed. IPR law is in urgent need of reform because it's doing more to harm than help.

Those people who are unable to work without state-sponsored monopolies in place need to be encouraged to find alternative income streams so they can find new revenue streams.

Is there a central resource page somewhere with help and advice for those people? Since they're helping to drive this, we need to address them instead of merely opposing them.
