Today sees the publication of Glyn Moody’s ‘Walled Culture’, an important book charting the history of digital copyright, what it means for consumers to no longer own the content they ‘purchase’, and the social, economic and technological implications of corporate ownership of knowledge and culture.

Yohanna, Caroline and Rachel get a mention, as does the #ebookSOS campaign, in the context of a discussion around the dysfunction of the ebook market and the lack of ownership options for libraries.

We urge anyone interested in #ebookSOS or the wider issues of digital copyright to get stuck in to ‘Walled Culture’! In true principled fashion, the ebook is freely available to download and print copies can be purchased from all good bookstores.
