DIGITAL BARBARISM A Writer's Manifesto

by | Read by David Colacci

Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

These abundant opinions of a controversial American novelist, journalist, and conservative commentator have stirred much media attention. Among the ideas addressed, he makes his case for revisiting the 75-year limitation on a copyright. He argues that in the digital age of "copy and paste," our deteriorating intellectual property rights need an extension of legal protection to perpetuity. Narrator David Colacci's treatment prolongs the last word of each sentence and follows each with a longer pause than most narrators use. The technique isolates the sentences, keeping them from flowing together in a continuous narrative. In his praise, the patronizing inflections Colacci chooses aptly portray the author's abundant sarcasm, and his elocution will help listeners absorb the demanding essay.
