CONTENT - Selected Essays on Technology, Creativity, Copyright and the Future of the Future - Cory Doctorow

Cory Doctorow nos brinda com sua primeira coletânea de ensaios. O assunto central não poderia ser outro senão aquele em que Cory é conhecido por sua atitude e coerência, o futuro dos direitos autorais, assunto que faz muito editor correr para debaixo da mesa.

Com inteligência e pensamento afiado, além da habitual ousadia, Cory nos ilumina com sua conversa franca e sem rodeios.
