Books are Antagonistic to Free Culture

Books are proprietary knowledge repositories.

Books, whether they are electronic or paper, are built to do the same thing – enforce IP. If we want a definition of what a book is, books are proprietary knowledge repositories.

Now in the era of free culture and digital media, we need to look back and realise that this ‘beautiful object’ actually is a premiere mechanism of IP control.

Books are antagonistic to free culture.
