You know, I'd be willing to consider this as a wildly imperfect compromise, if the quid-pro-quo was no more file-sharing lawsuits and threats, no more DRM laws, no more lawsuits against toolsmiths and ISPs, no more censorship and surveillance demands... But as far as I can tell, the deal on offer is: "pay up and get nothing in return."
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
