the people making money off of copyright aren't artists, they're disney's shareholders
@garfiald I generally agree with this but also interested in ideas on how an artist can make a living without copyright.
@polychrome in an ideal society everyone gets to live, nobody has to "make a living". In our society, 99.9% of artists already do make a living without copyright. They have a day job, are supported through patronage, and selling their art as a product (visual artists selling originals for example), or as a service (commissions, performances, etc). Intellectual property is capital, the only people who make real money from it are capitalists.
@garfiald This so much. Copyright is such a burden to a free culture.... and the comparison to rent is so good.
Of all the things in capitalism which should go after another, rental capitalism is very high on my list.
Patents are probably the biggest fuckup of this whole copyright mess...
