Piracy is Good – Elisabeth Murdoch

I like posting "man bites dog" type stories, and given that Rupert Murdoch has called news aggregators pirates, I'd say this story about his daughter Elisabeth fits the bill. From an article on B&C:

Piracy is a constant danger in the world of digital content and social media, but it's a risk that producers must take, Murdoch said. "Fans remain the best salesmen of our content, even if that behavior is on the borderline of piracy. Danger of the new world is that we must concede that we'll lose some control."

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
