INTRODUCTION
______________________________________________
This 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).
