Neil Gaiman Interview Involving Copyright

Neil Gaiman on how his views on copyright and piracy changed.

"That's really all this is; it's people lending books."

I discovered Gaiman through a book a friend lent to me at a particularly cruddy time in my life; Good Omens, which he co-authored with a favourite author of mine at the time, Terry Pratchett. And after I read that, I decided I wanted to read more by him, and proceeded to be a big fan of Neil's for years and years after that, even breaking my 'no hardcovers' rule for him. I have borrowed Neil Gaiman's books, I have lent Neil Gaiman's books, but I have never pirated Neil Gaiman's books.
