What is Step2?

Floor64's Step2 is a community brainstorming platform for asking about, suggesting, creating, and building models for success, with help from the Insight Community. It's not just about the "business" model, but the overall "success" model. How do you create that connection with the marketplace? How do you offer something worth buying? Step2 is here to help.

If you're trying to figure out how to succeed, provide some details and ask for some insight. If you've got ideas, jump into the existing discussions. Let's all team up to help turn the Step 2 in every plan into something more than just question marks.

Countering the copyright industry's propaganda

0 like 0 dislike

I have been working on a short piece on piracy. It's going to be distributed on public trackers together with other content...... I'm interested in finding effective ways to undo some of the damage the industry's propaganda has done to society. 

Wondering if I can get some feedback, My writing is not great:

(visual novels are a type of Japanese adventure game. fuwanovel is just a site im in the process of launching). 


If you can make any suggestions, that would be greatly appreciated~

btw, I relinquish everything I write to the public domain. no rights reserved plz.

Good work, good idea - but I have some feedback:

I am not sure I got the message of your work.  Are you trying to defend piracy, attack copyright or counter the industry's propaganda?  You seem to touch on all of them while concluding neither.  Perhaps a tighter and simpler message would be more effective?

In terms of visual style, I must admit that I am not a fan of visual novels.  I found yours a little difficult to follow.   Fewer fonts and more blank space between paragraphs would certainly help.

Hope this helps a little.

Hmm, I'm with Adam here. I think you either need to bring it down to a more focussed message or, alternatively, expand on what you have but break it down into a chapter-like structure.

Personally I think it's worth emphasising the world income gap a bit more. A tune may only cost $0.99 on i-tunes but that's still a day's wage in many parts of the globe.
