The New York Times ran a story about the Free Culture movement – organized groups of young activists in universities around the country that protest copyright protection and communication policies.

One interesting comment from the article was quoted by fellow blogger & author Cory Doctorow, saying that:

The recording industry lawsuits were not ‘scaring students away from file-sharing, but scaring them into political consciousness.'

While file-sharing is one of the larger topics Free Culture deals with, other anti-projects of theirs include DRM issues, looser patent-regulations on prescription-drugs and an interesting breakfast cereal patent-infringement story.
