Jobless Recovery

The internet age is certainly finding new ways to tax individual morality. If Les Misérables were written today, would Jean Valjean be going to jail for downloading mp3s?

Last week's poll question: How do you feel about Rip Hunter being replaced by John Constantine as chronicler of the secrets of the DCnU? (47 votes)

How do you feel about Rip Hunter being replaced by John Constantine as chronicler of the secrets of the DCnU?

Yesterday at ComicBook.com, Russ Burlingame explored the possible meanings of the scribblings seen in Justice League Dark #14. While Burlingame may be concerned about what they mean, I'm far more interested in who wrote them!

Taking What They're Giving

Earlier this week, I was asked whether I ever downloaded comic books from peer-to-peer networks. I admitted that yes, I did occasionally download books, but only back issues that were several years old. My friend -- who happens to be a parole officer -- asked me why I limited myself to out-of-date books, pointing out that Booster Gold wouldn't bother with such restrictions.

Obviously, comic book publishers are in business to sell comic books. They need us to buy their product, and have every right to defend their business by enforcing their copyrighted material. If we all take their comics for free from the internet, eventually there will no longer be any new DC comics.

However, if you buy a comic that you really enjoy, the publishers would want you to share that experience with your friends in the hopes of selling comics to them too. How is sharing comics peer-to-peer any different than passing your floppies to your friends over the kitchen table each week?
