4.0 out of 5 stars Great headphones, but regularly break, 17 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are great quality headphones. Only downside is that I've now had two pairs break (losing sound to one or both headphones), one pair after 5 months. Now onto my third!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent overview of the problems with copyright, 7 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How to Fix Copyright (Hardcover)
This is a well-written and to-the-point review of what copyright is supposed to achieve, and why it currently fails to do so - along with suggestions for better policy options. It is almost jargon-free, and accessible to anyone with an interest in copyright - which these days should include any Internet user. Any politician thinking of changing copyright law should read this first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Copyright reform is a tricky business, 29 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
William Patry is one of the world's leading authorities on copyright, and previously acted for the US House of Representatives Judiciary Committee as copyright counsel and as an adviser for the US Register of Copyrights. This angry book gives you a sense of just how frustrating these roles became as copyright interests resisted all meaningful reform while the Internet revolutionised the information environment around them. It's an essential read for anyone interested in how copyright could be redesigned to better support innovation, creativity and the public interest.
