INTRODUCTIONThis work offers a broad view on media piracy as well as a
variety of comparative perspectives on recent issues and historical
facts regarding piracy. It contains a compilation of texts on
grass­roots situations whose stories describe strategies developed to
share, distribute and experience cultural content outside of the
confines of local economies, politics or laws. These stories recount the
experiences of individuals from India, Cuba, Brazil, Mexico, Mali and
China. The book is structured in four parts and begins with a collection
of stories on piracy dating back to the invention of the printing press
and expanding to broader issues (historical and modern anti-­piracy
technologies, geographically­ specific issues, as well as the rules of
the Warez scene, its charters, structure and visual culture…).
