    that persistence is not by politicians any more, it’s what Anonymous aspire to be, but fail at a media controlled by content thieves that will need to cover for themselves by destroying the past just a few people

    corporate surveillance of media consumption of the past… this is so arrogant… look at what the biggest culprit, Disney, does. Puts its name on Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan over and over, when, they do not own those… Right now Hachette’s Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (not removed) is available on Internet Archive, while Dan Brown’s Origin is not (removed). It was so little persistent that we had 100 years of intellectual property. The next hundred years will be silent, while Disney tries to justify the battles it will soon be waging to make its property (not its property) unavailable to the public (by the argument of getting there first).
