this is a really great graphic novel about copyright that has beena round for a while, and just recently got expanded upon with a new introduction from everyones favorite high-altitude balloon blogger, cory doctrow.

the comic does an exceptional job at breaking down issues such as fair use and public domain through the story of a documentary filmaker. it’s creative commons licensed and can be downloaded as a pdf, or purchased for a (thoroughly) reasonable fee.
