+ - English poet's view of copyright infringement 1

Submitted by united_notions
united_notions writes: English poet Wendy Cope has written a piece in the Guardian complaining about her work being copied online, and generally bemoaning people's misunderstanding of copyright law. An especially nice quote:

'A poem is very easy to copy, whereas nobody is going to photocopy or download a whole novel or work of non-fiction.'
