Copyright chaos: A reality check!

An excerpt from Utah Law Professor John Tehranian’s article HERE:

“The dichotomy between copyright law and norms is profound yet underappreciated. On any given day, for example, even the most law-abiding American engages in thousands of actions that likely constitute copyright infringement. The widespread use of peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing technology, which has enabled ordinary Americans to become mass copyright infringers with spectacular ease, has brought the law/norm gap to light. However, the problem extends far beyond P2P activities. We are, technically speaking, a nation of constant infringers.”
