The Oil of the 21st Century

Borrowing the working title from the 2007 conference dedicated to the "Perspectives on Intellectual Property", I want to look into a variety of entities involved in global data market, including public torrent sites, (TPB), private torrent sites (KaraGarga, What.cd), cyberlockers (Megaupload), CD/DVD copy market. Where do people behind these companies come from, what do they believe in? Explore the libertarian assumptions behind the culture of anti-copyright.
