Year Zero

Low level entertainment lawyer Nick Carter thinks it’s a prank not an alien encounter when a redheaded mullah and a curvaceous nun show up at his office But Frampton and Carly are highly advanced if bumbling extraterrestrials And boy do they have news The enti. I had a great time with this very funny book but a few things should be accounted for1 You have to be a music nerd2 You ought to have a healthy respect or disrespect for music copyright laws and the dimensions they involve3 You must have a sense of humorOne really ought to be a must or most of the great references and jokes will be lost and it is entirely possible to learn and be impressed by the great solutions to the copyright kerfuffle here so you could sueak by with number two but I m gonna have to insist on number three That being said this is a light and completely snarky SF about music Specifically how the rest of the galaxy so completely loves our music that it has been secretly stealing every single song we ve produced to their great joy and as we soon learn their great dismay because they respect the law Or at least they apply that respect to the home world s system of laws where the art is produced and this is where the biggest problem arisesStolen songs here comes at a cost of 150k per song in damages Current estimation of damages across the galaxy is about 13 the total gross wealth of the galaxy Earth would be RICH AS HELL if it wasn t for that little spark of expediency called destroying the debt owed Good music Sure But we can t pay that much Kill em So yeah this does have a bit of a DNA vibe going on and it is very funny throughout because those galactics love everything we ve made but that s where the similarities endNo spoilers but a single Earth lawyer s journey through the galaxy is fantastic and the eventual solution is geeky and fun as hell Thank you Lessig

review Year Zero

Re cosmos they tell him has been hopelessly hooked on humanity’s music ever since “Year Zero” 1977 to us when American pop songs first reached alien ears This addiction has driven a vast intergalactic society to commit the biggest copyright violation since. A science fiction book for people who normally wouldn t be caught dead reading science fiction and one that s directed with laser like focus at its intended audience Year Zero is entertaining enough for what it is but the book is trying very hard to evoke the spirit of Douglas Adams and not surprisingly it falls well short of that mark Add to that an irritating tendency to include pop culture references that are getting well past their time Rickrolling Gaga etc and flavor of the moment vocal tics as well Really Zip it and you have a book that s going to feel very dated in about Well actually it feels a bit dated alreadyEven this would be fine if the book wasn t uite so desperate to pander to its intended audience Obviously a book like this should be entertaining but it s hard not to notice certain details Take for example the corrupt senator in the pocket of the music labels who happens to belong to the political party the book s probable readers would prefer he hail from even though he almost certainly would belong to the other party You know the one this book s 30 40 something likely to be loyal NPR listening readers probably belong to themselves But we might have found that upsetting so Reid obliges even if the result seems very unlikely and thereby misses a potentially biting opportunity for humor So it s not surprising that the book is getting positive reviews from the likes of BoingBoing it s not like they would ever ding a book like this no matter how it was written and you might very well love it too But you might want to sample the first couple of chapters before you take the plunge just to be sure you won t find it annoying than amusing
