Charles Sheehan Miles is a writer and activist who traveled throughout the Middle East on his own in the 1980’s and returned with the US Army, Gulf War troops in 1991. He argues in defense of copyright protections as an essential tool for artists and writers. Travis is the creator of TUEBL which is a digital library and growing free collection of works that he says is worth going to jail to protect. He argues for open source access to information and defends his TUEBL library as fully legal. In an interesting twist the debate wraps with an offer by Travis to put Charles’ book on the free site and personally pay for any lost sales if TUBEL doesn’t outperform Amazon income.
