The news has been filled with the case of Jammie Thomas—the woman fined $220,000 for illegal file sharing. I have mixed feelings about this case; I don't condone piracy, but I also feel that current copyright law (and its enforcement) is too broad and restrictive.
So I chose to respond with a little willful copyright violation of my own in the form of this Disney collage. Enjoy.(My concerns with copyright are not unique.
