Here’s the Notice
Copyright 2014 by Michael Sacks
Penguin supports copyright. Copyright fuels creativity, encourages diverse voices, promotes free speech and creates a vibrant culture.

Why It Rocks
The only ad that is worse than the digital piracy PSAs is the immortal frying pan with eggs equals your brain on drugs. This notice works because it’s nice, explains why rather than why not and thanks rather than threatens. Who does not want to “promote free speech”? The reader that reads this notice [granted-there won’t be that many] will sit up straight, pat themselves on the back and then say “You’re welcome Penguin.”
