OK, people. The MERP-team has created a petition to sign if you want to voice your concerns about the Cease & Desist they received from Warner Bros. I talked about that event in a couple of blogposts down. I’ve signed the petition already, and I think you should go and sign it too. It’s a way to make a statement.
I want to see the modding world totally liberated and separated from these corporate economic interests. It is really important. I see the modding world as one of the few remaining bastions of sharing and freely creating together without the factor of monetary interests involved in any way. Now they’re starting to realize that, the freedom we have, those corporations that want to enslave and eat your mind, creativity and soul, and they want to end it because freedom is rarely profitable for those kinds of organizations.
So let your voice be heard; sound the trumpets, beat the drums. Together we will raise the battlecry of an army. We shall not let greedy corporations like WB lay their bloodied hands on our democratic rights without offering battle.
