Doctorow on “How to Destroy the Book”

Cory Doctorow, Creative Commons founder and copyright activist gave a speech at the National Reading Summit entitled “How to Destroy the Book.” Transcribed by The Varsity.Ca, it’s both fascinating commentary on the copyright issues that e-books are going to face in the next few years, and a beautiful statement on readers as a whole:

“We are the people of the book. We love our books. We fill our houses with books. We treasure books we inherit from our parents, and we cherish the idea of passing those books on to our children.”
