Copyright Quotations

Only one thing is impossible for God: To find any sense in any copyright law on the planet.
Mark Twain

The absolute transformation of everything that we ever thought about music will take place within 10 years, and nothing is going to be able to stop it. I see absolutely no point in pretending that it's not going to happen. I'm fully confident that copyright, for instance, will no longer exist in 10 years.
David Bowie

A brainy person does not abuse copyright; instead they respect it and uphold it.
Maximillian Degenerez

Esther Dyson
