Cory Doctorow: Google’s YouTube policy for Android users is copyright extremism

Unless you’re running a very specific version of Google’s software on your phone or tablet, you can’t “rent” movies on YouTube.

This is as extreme as copyright gets, really. Book publishers have never told you which rooms you could read in, or what light bulbs you were allowed to use, or whether you could rebind the book or take it abroad with you. Broadcasters have never vetoed the design of radios.

The extension of copyright to “configuration right” is a profound shift in the history of technology and culture.
