I'm not sure that the non-producing chattering class left-wingers in academia who are constantly agitating for "dialog" and "change" when it comes to notions of property are aware of how infuriating it sounds to people who are out there actually producing things.

I just listened to Mr. Lessig on KQED and his utter contempt for big-name, extremely popular artists (which he would refer to as "quote, artists") was naked and utterly childish, but expected when it comes to "scholars" like him and adolescents who spend all night illegally downloading music alike. He (and the illegal downloaders) has nil in the way of suggestions for copyright "reform" and lots in the way of excuses for illegal and immoral behavior.

It sure is easy for "academics" like Mr. Lessig to sit on high in their ivory towers, under cover of tenure, producing nothing, sneering at producers who rely on product sales for their livelihood.

Here's a great video from Kid Rock for the piracy advocates out there:
