'You wouldn't steal a handbag'

When he's not Twittering away, stuck in lifts, the UK's beloved Stephen Fry is a thoroughly good public speaker. He speaks with flair, confidence, eloquence and of course, wit.

One such example is at the 2009 I-Tunes festival, where his illuminating account of the history of copyright as as comprehensive as you will find anywhere.

He goes on to discuss his thoughts on file-sharing in an amusing way where it's really interesting to hear the voice of someone who works in the creative industries. 

It raises some interesting questions, but I direct you there rather as I think it's a good accessible background to set up some of the content to follow on this blog in the coming months.
