There was a time when Neil Gaiman got cross when his work appeared, without permission, on the internet.
In this video he explains the journey he has been on when it comes to free content online and the tests he has carried out. He points out that some of the widely held assumptions about the protection of copyright are wrong.
I’ve heard it argued that you need to be a hugely successful author like Gaiman or King before you have the luxury to dabble in internet releases like this and to stop worrying about the money side of things. Do you think that’s fair?
