Book summary

Considering how many tricky ethical and legal questions there are with various electronic reproductions, The Culture of the Copy is a timely book. Our fascination with copies, replicas, and reproduction is explored in this unusual and engaging historical and cultural survey. While it isn't solely about electronic copies, the historical review of the technology of reproduction sets our current debates over copyright and intellectual property in the digital age in perspective. In fact, Schwartz suggests that the ethical dilemmas in many fields have become inseparable from our pursuit of copies. [via]
