Endlich hat sich jemand konstruktiv der zweifelhaften kanadischen Kampagne angenommen, Kinder schon pro-DRM zu instruieren, bevor sie die Kreativität unvoreingenommen erfahren können. MCM aus Victoria BC, Kanada schreibt:
The Pig and the Box is about a pig who finds a magic box that can replicate anything you put into it. The pig becomes so protective of it, and so suspicious of anyone that wants to use it, that he makes people take their copied items home in special buckets that act as… well, they’re basically DRM. It’s like a fable, except the moral of the story is very modern in tone.
I made the book after hearing how the entertainment industry in Canada is keen on teaching young kids about how to „respect“ copyright. That was a bit heavy-handed, I thought, and otherwise despicable. Preying on small kids, brainwashing them so they believe what you’re doing is honourable and good… Feh. So I wrote this book partly as a response to that venture, to counter-act the confused ideals that young’ns are being exposed to these days. Also, I wanted to write potty humour.
