Call it "whack-a-mole" in the digital age, or tilting at windmills in a more classical sense, advocating for the rights of creators can be a battle--paradoxically so because most people fundamentally believe in creators' rights. As I hope I expressed in the book, I believe protecting the various rights reserved for creative professionals is about more than just the need for those creators to make a living.
Launched in 2012, the blog site The Illusion of More is where I do most of my spouting off on the subject of copyright in the digital age along with a host of editorials on the alleged promise of the digital age itself. IOM has been cited by legal professionals, educational institutions, other bloggers and journalists, and in academic papers, policy reports, and testimony before Congress.

Beyond IOM, I have published editorials at The Hill, IPWatchdog, Allegro, and Content Cafe, Australia. I have also collaborated on copyright issues with Copyright Alliance, CreativeFuture, the Center for the Protection of Intellectual Property, rights organizations in music, writing, photography, and film, and with a list of passionate individuals too long to name here.
Yes, I would probably love to attend your discussion group, roundtable, event, class (or these days Zoom meeting) as a guest speaker. Just email me, and let me know what you have in mind. David@adastracreative.net
