By: Greg K. Sun, 02 Jan 2005 01:03:26 +0000 Uh, who are the “monopolists”? Monopolies are illegal, except the government of course.

By: David Thompson Wed, 29 Dec 2004 04:11:44 +0000 May I add “IP Justice” ( to the list of worthy organizations? It’s internationally focused and tries to change policy before it’s too late. Good stuff, check them out. I’ve made my EFF contribution as well.

By: Andrew Boysen Tue, 28 Dec 2004 16:06:48 +0000 I donated to EFF a little while back. I also asked about volunteer opportunities that don’t require living CA (even though I write license contracts for Oracle, I work in the Boston area), but haven’t heard back. Anyone from MA know of similar organizations here?

PS – you get awesome stuff when you donate to the EFF!

I don’t really buy any music, but I do buy some movies and books. However, when I’m done I often give them away or share them.

are also a monopolist for you own copyright in your writings.
Perhaps, you are talking about supporting friendly, generous
monopolists as opposed to unfriendly, selfish monopolists.

By: Alexander Wehr Sun, 26 Dec 2004 02:03:15 +0000 I gave $8 to monopolists this year in purchasing a film dating back to when MPAA ‘product’ was still tolerable.

I gave many times more (i cant figure out how much) to ipac among others. I believe i remember donating to a specific legal defense fund.. it really doesnt matter if i can remember it all or not, because it’s done.

When i get my credit paid back down in the future ill be donating more. Not to worry.
