Yochai Benkler turns to the Gothic to describe one aspect of the copyright battle:
Criminalization has become a Golem/Frankenstein, hunting technological innovation through its own internal bureaucratic logic.
Benkler's referring to the creation of state positions for copyright enforcement:
One of the most brilliant moves the industry made over the course of the past decade has been to lobby for, and obtain, the creation and funding of various positions within the Government whose career success depends on harnessing the resources of the federal government to carry out critical parts of the industry's assault on threatening technologies and the more aggressive users.
Later on Benkler recommends we put the golem to sleep.
