Nice restrained use of Norman Mclaren's Neighbours.

Great job, but I hope Kirby isn't just preaching to the choir.

Seems a lot of restatement of well known or obvious points without any suggestions for how to reconcile the rights of creative types and the wants of consumers.

Pretty weak.

He lost me when he said that copyright law didn't recognize the derivative nature of creativity.
