  • Description: Griffin analyzes several of these collectives in depth, including Ergo Sum, a women’s feminist group; the Cartonera cardboard book publishers; Libros de Mentira (Fake Books) and its webpage; and Santiago en 100 Palabras (Santiago in 100 Words), a public writing contest. [...]Santiago en 100 Palabras, a literary contest, opened short-story writing and publication to the Chilean masses; the winning pieces are displayed in the Metro subway system for everyone to read. Copyright also protects the rights of writers (and photographers, musicians, and artists) to their original creative work and provides a defense against plagiarism and idea theft, allowing those who create to earn an income (for many, a modest income) and recognition of their work.
