Cory Doctorow is a true believer in the power of technology.

His first novel, “Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom,” is one of the first works to be published under the Creative Commons license — an agreement that lets people copy and redistribute the book freely so long as they credit the author — and is available for download on his Web site. That move puts Doctorow at the forefront of a growing digital rights movement.
