Cory Doctorow on online censorship

I’m really liking CBC’s radio program, Search Engine. There are a few annoying things, like how two point oh they are, and how the word crowdsourcing is used at least 5 times in each half hour episode, but overall I really like it.
Yesterday’s episode had author, activist and Boing-boinger Cory Doctorow on for the second time. He read an piece on artists needing more protection from government censorship laws than from file sharing fans:

It’s one thing to be denied your credit or compensation, but it’s another thing entirely to have your work suppressed, burned or banned. You’d never know it, however, judging from the state of the law surrounding the creation and use of internet publishing tools.

Cory also did a lecture on privacy at SFU Vancouver in March 2007.
