Copyrighting Culture: The Political Economy of Intellectual Property

By Ronald V. Bettig | Go to book overview

lost a lot of momentum as many activists managed to penetrate the system and achieve comfortable, middle- and upper-class social status. Similarly, the middle and upper social classes play a conservative role in Third World countries, perpetuating the dramatic inequalities in the distribution of wealth and power found there. Global solidarity struggles must stress that genuine freedom, democracy, and justice cannot be achieved without significant improvement in the basic rights of all humanity. This is the common goal for which popular resistance should strive.
