It's A Free Country!

Aaron Schwartz is a boy genius who writes a popular weblog in which he comments about technology and society.

Being a genius, his comments on technology are pretty interesting. Being a boy, his comments on society, not so much.

But he just wrote that he's looking for help on a DVD, MPEG project he's working on. He says he needs someone who can host a website "in a free country (i.e. one without the DMCA)." In other words NOT the USA.

Sadly I think he makes a good point, not only about the DMCA, but about things in general. We are in the midst of a frightening trend where the US is no longer the free-est country on earth.
