Rec: “Cease and Desist” by Tyler Young

“Cease and Desist” by Tyler Young, January 18 2017 Nature, science fiction short story

Humanity receives a legal notice from the IP folks (and that doesn’t stand for Interstellar Patrol).

This is kinda perfect. This flash fiction blends form and function in a clever and concise satire of a major aspect of our current corporate and legal structure. And, like the best satire, it’s actually at least as sad and serious as it is funny. Astounding/Analog has a section called “Probability Zero” and this would be perfect for that except that it may be Probability One Hundred.
