Information Doesn't Want to Be Free by Cory Doctorow

Information Doesn't Want to Be Free: Laws for the Internet Age by Cory Doctorow --- 162 pages

Science fiction author, journalist, blogger and Internet activist Cory Doctorow has promulgated his Three Laws for the Internet Age:

First Law: "Any Time Someone Puts a Lock on Something That Belongs to You and Won't Give You the Key, That Lock Isn't There for Your Benefit."

Second Law:  "Fame Won't Make You Rich, But You Can't Get Paid Without It."

Third Law: "Information Doesn't Want to Be Free, People Do."

In this book, in his own inimitable fashion, Doctorow presents his arguments for the benefits of a free and open digital culture.
