Fat horses and starving sparrows: on bullshit in copyright debates

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

'One of the most salient features of our culture is that there is so much bullshit' - so begins moral philosopher Harry Frankfurt's treatise on bullshit and its function. Bullshit comes, he argues, from one who 'does not care whether the things he says describe reality correctly', but says them regardless, in pursuit of their desired ends.
