Description:
This book by Prof. Edward Lee provides a gripping, behind-the-scenes look at how people organized the largest Internet protest in history, plus the largest single-day demonstration on the streets of 27 countries of the European Union. The Internet helped people fight for their Internet freedoms -- and do the unthinkable in stopping powerful lobbyists, Hollywood, and the entertainment industry in their effort to clamp down on online piracy at all costs.
