• This. Curtailing Intellectual Monopoly: The Insanity of US Copyright Law

• More Americans need to be aware that (just as with health care), the U.S. pays a helluva lot more for telecommunications than the rest of the postindustrial world, and gets far worse service for it. Until Americans realize this en masse, they will continue to cling to the clearly mistaken notion that America does everything better than all the rest of the world, and will not demand change from their leaders.

• Good advice! How to Increase Media Diversity: 3 Lessons from the London Feminist Film Festival

• Inevitable. The book is great — I hope that the BBC will do it justice. BBC One announces plans to bring J.K. Rowling’s best-selling novel The Casual Vacancy to the screen

• #ZeroDarkThirty: Chastain owns this cracking procedural, but maybe it’s a little more propagandistic than I’d like
