You may ask: why should I care?

Aside from the breach of faith, Unsplash have formed a huge “anti-commons”.

They are not the only anti-commons, but they are among the largest, and they built their success on a vast act of enclosure.

Are people here familiar with Unsplash.com?

They started off publishing a photolibrary with Creative Commons Zero licencing.

Then in 2017 they revoked the lot, and applied the “Unsplash Licence” which is incompatible with any Creative Commons licence.

I really am appalled.

Hahahaha amazing photo. New York police guarding the bull statue on Wall Street is the perfect symbol for the true role that cops play in capitalist society: protecting private property

They are the violence that the capitalist state uses to shield the rich elite from the masses

My assumption is that in future being able to run a server on the clearnet will become increasingly challenging. Right now the internet is still relatively open in the UK, such that you don't need to get a license or any official permission to have your own domain name. But with everything moving in an authoritarian direction I expect that to change and for the internet to be increasingly regulated so that the ruling class does not encounter quite so much friction and for example that videos depicting police doing unlawful things have reduced chance of finding their way into the public domain.

So I think it's worth investigating p2p fediverse implementations and things which could be more resistant to censorship than DNS is.

That said, I think most admins should try to remain on the clearnet unless it becomes practically impossible or too unsafe. Being where the eyeballs are has big advantages.

Its a problem. Ok liberals what's the way out of this mess you guys keep pushing?
