What do we want copyright to do?; (London) Guardian, 11/23/10

Cory Doctorow, (London) Guardian; What do we want copyright to do?: Without posing this question, asking whether intellectual property laws are working is like asking how long is a piece of string:

"Copyright is in tremendous flux at the moment; governments all over the world are considering what their copyright systems should look like in the 21st century, and it's probably a good idea to nail down what we want copyright to do. Otherwise the question "Is copyright working?" becomes as meaningless as "How long is a piece of string?""
