NOTE: This file is from Bruce Sterling's "agitprop" disk at
gopher://oak.zilker.net/11/bruces. It contains his "literary 
policy on writings he has placed online, including _The Hacker 


The documents on this disk are not commodities.  They're not 
for sale.

They are not part of the "information economy."  Some of them 
were part 

of the commercial economy once, in the sense that I got paid 
for writing 

some of them, but they've since been liberated.  You didn't 
have to pay 

any money to get them.  If you did pay anything to see this 
stuff, you've 

been ripped off.  If you didn't get this data for free, send me 
some e-mail 

and tell me about it.  Information *wants* to be free.   And I 
know where 

you can get a lot more.

You can copy them.   Copy the hell out of them, be my guest.

You can upload them onto boards or discussion groups.  Go 
right ahead, 

enjoy yourself.

You can print them out.

You can photocopy the printouts and hand them around as long 
as you don't

take any money for it.

But they're not public domain.  You can't copyright them.  
Attempts to pirate 

this stuff and make money from it may involve you in a serious 

snarl; believe me, for the pittance you might wring out of such 
an action, it's 

really not worth it.  This stuff don't "belong" to you.  A lot of it, 
like the 

Internet electronic zines I've included, doesn't "belong" to me, 
either.  It 

belongs to the emergent realm of alternative information 
economics, for 

whatever *that's* worth.  You don't have any right to make 
this stuff part of 

the conventional flow of commerce.  Let them be part of the 
flow of 

knowledge:  there's a difference.  Don't sell them.  And don't 
alter the text, 

either; that would be a hopelessly way-dork move.  Just make 

more, and give them to whoever might want or need them.

Now have fun.
