The Googlization of everything : (and why we should worry) by Siva Vaidhyanathan ( Book )
28 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the beginning, the World Wide Web was exciting and open to the point of anarchy, a vast and intimidating repository of unindexed confusion. Into this creative chaos came Google with its dazzling mission--"To organize the world's information and make it universally accessible"--And its much-quoted motto, "Don't be evil." In this provocative book, Siva Vaidhyanathan examines the ways we have used and embraced Google--and the growing resistance to its expansion across the globe. He exposes the dark side of our Google fantasies, raising red flags about issues of intellectual property and the much-
Copyrights and copywrongs : the rise of intellectual property and how it threatens creativity by Siva Vaidhyanathan ( Book )
14 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 1,879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Copyright reflects far more than economic interests. Embedded within conflicts over royalties and infringement are cultural values - about access, ownership, free speech, race, class, and democracy - which influence how rights are determined and enforced. Questions of legitimacy - of what constitutes "intellectual property" or "fair use," and of how to locate a precise moment of cultural creation - have become enormously complicated in recent years, as advances in technology have exponentially increased the speed of cultural reproduction and dissemination. In Copyrights and Copywrongs, Siva Vaidhyanathan tracks the history of American copyright law through the twentieth century, from Mark Twain's vehement exhortations for "thick" copyright protection to recent lawsuits regarding sampling in rap music and the "digital moment," exemplified by the rise of Napster and MP3 technology. He argues that in its current punitive, highly restrictive form, American copyright law hinders cultural production, thereby contributing to the poverty of civic culture"--BOOK JACKET
The anarchist in the library : how the clash between freedom and control is hacking the real world and crashing the system by Siva Vaidhyanathan ( Book )
17 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 1,451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The recording industry has sued the music downloaders into submission, but as a model of communication, their effects still echo around the world. The proliferation of such peer-to-peer networks may appear to threaten many established institutions, and the backlash against them could be even worse than the problems they create. Their effects - good and bad - resonate far beyond markets for music. They are altering our sense of the possible, extending our cultural and political imaginations." "Unregulated networks of communication have existed as long as gossip has. But with the rise of electronic communication, they are exponentially more important. And they are drawing the contours of a struggle over information that will determine much of the culture and politics of our century, from unauthorized fan edits of Star Wars to terrorist organizations' reliance on "leaderless resistance." The Anarchist in the Library is the first guide to one of the most important cultural and economic developments of our time."--Jacket
