Piracy and over-reaction
12 January 2018 | by paul2001sw-1See all my reviews

New technology creates fertile ground for self-proclaimed visionaries, con-artists, and anyone who spots new opportunities to externalise costs. The German entrepreneur who later renamed himself "Kim Dotcom" was not a conventional figure, a shy man who made his reputation by partying in public; but who made his money off the back of internet piracy. Yet one can still be concerned about the circumstances of his arrest in New Zealand, which seems to have used massive, and massively inappropriate, force, been informed by illegal surveillance and motivated by political concerns. Nonetheless, I found this documentary a little over-sympathetic to Mr. Dotcom. We live in a world where it's possible to grab a great fortune in little time without doing much good for anyone else; there's definitely an attitude of undeserved entitlement from tech "pirates" who delight in exploiting new ways of breach norms but nonetheless cry foul when the government doesn't play fair. We do need to keep a leash on those who claim to rule on our behalf; but "finders' keepers" libertarianism doesn't offer us much hope of a better alternative.
