Le Petit Prince au pays des Hackers

Peter Westenberg is invited in the basement of La Quadrature du Net in Paris, where he is asked to SYMBOLICALLY scan his book of St Exupéry’s Petit Prince using their Open and DIY Bookscanner.

It will be quite a particular scan session. Peter does not have the right to scan his book nor to share digital copies. Why? Because Antoine de St Exupéry may have arrived safe and well in the public domain in Belgium and the rest of Europe, fans in France will have to wait another 30 years because Antoine de Saint-Exupéry who disappeared in the sea during WWII, received the postume title of « Mort pour la France », which extends the copyright on his work.
