World Watch: Author John Degen’s Seriously Must Read Post “5 Seriously Dumb Myths About Copyright”

MUSIC • TECHNOLOGY • POLICY

Canadian author John Degen (@jkdegen) wrote a funny and informative post that I recommend to anyone interested in artist rights and copyright, “5 Seriously Dumb Myths About Copyright.”  And this means you, journalists–especially you journalists who uncritically write to the press release from the Electronic Frontier Foundation or the sainted Creative Commons.

John’s post has been widely distributed (was the #2 most read post on Medium), but if you haven’t read it, please take a few minutes.

We’ve known John for years, but in case you don’t know his background:

John Degen is a novelist and poet. He is Executive Director of The Writers’ Union of Canada, an organization representing more than 2000 professional authors. He is also Chair of the International Authors Forum, which currently represents close to half a million professional authors worldwide.
