Writing in defence of rights management and in response to my comment on his interview, Spoor & Fisher’s Owen Dean says he and I “approach copyright from two diametrically opposed departure points”. We do. But Dean goes on to misconstrue what I wrote in a number of ways
Andrew Rens has commented on the recent interview TechCentral conducted with me in which I expressed critical comment on the state of SA’s copyright laws and, more particularly, as they affect the music industry. Rens and I approach copyright from two diametrically opposed departure points, so it’s not surprising that we have differing views on what constitutes appropriate protection under copyright.
