A down side to socialism?

Sweden’s youth apparently believe that they have a right to copies of films, music, and even textbooks authored by others. A new site called Student Bay launched late last week to host scans of copyrighted academic books. The group says that “in Sweden it is claimed that education is free,” according to a translation in The Local. “Despite this students are forced every term to spend thousands of kronor on books necessary for their education. It is totally unreasonable.”

All together, now: there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.
