The Pirate’s Dilemma: How Youth Culture is Reinventing Capitalism by Matt Mason

The Pirate’s Dilemma is an examination of the pirate spirit, its rejection of authority, and the profound ways that this philosophy has changed the world for the better. By adopting the pirate spirit, individuals and businesses have a chance to use open-source methods in order to survive, flourish and be a positive influence in the inevitable shift towards an economy in which seemingly anything can be copied.

  • Anyone who is worried about how to compete with piracy
  • Anyone who wants to know how to use the open-source model to make a positive impact
  • Anyone interested in how D.I.Y. culture is helping people work for themselves

Matt Mason is a former pirate radio DJ and founding Editor-in-Chief at the music magazine RWD. In addition to writing for various publications, such as Vice and The Guardian, Mason also writes and produces numerous comics, screenplays, apps, TV series, recordings and advertising campaigns.
