Doctorow's Orders

Comics writer Warren Ellis hosts Fast Fiction Friday on his "die puny humans" site. From Boing Boing editor Cory Doctorow (no, not that Doctorow) comes a sweet, silly piece, of which probably 10% is excerpted (did I say that Fast Fiction makes for fast reading?)

But Spidey got a hero's welcome at the World Intellectual Property Organization. The US delegate took him up to the high cafeteria for Biftec et Cafe et Babybel, and introduced him to the sleek and cultured delegates from around the world. The French delegate shook his hand gravely and promised him that it would WIPO's top priority this year would be trademark protection for superheros. The way that the distributed vigilante gangs had appropriated and diluted their intellectual property -- it was a disgrace.
