Radical librarians Lawrence Liang (Alternative Law Forum, Bangalore) and Tomislav Medak (MAMA, Zagreb), discuss the recent release of the Megaupload programmer sentenced to a year in a US jail, and why pirates have always attracted extra-territorial law enforcement; the latest UK anti-piracy campaign; and the cases against Libgen, Sci-Hub and Bookfi, and why they’re not just immoral, but doomed to fail. Finally they introduce the custodians.online campaign – a call to arms that would make pirates of academics everywhere.
