Book Description

File sharing has become a widespread phenomenon. If it can be a blessing in terms of communication and progress, it obviously opens the door to far less angelic pursuits. Given the significant number of users participate in such ill-famed activities, could they be positive for the collectivity ? There is clearly more to the issue than its pecuniary dimension. Takers Economy proposes an alternative look at illegal file sharing in light of the role of art in society, and in the context of the oneness of all things. The inquiry also explores the global picture from which the circumstances emerge, and tries to characterize the culture that gives rise to them. Finally, the essay introduces a philosophy of endosymbiotism that aims to accord with the ethics of the inherent oneness of being.
