I can't stand our copyright system today. Now days copyrights are used to protect corporate interest, and they could care less about the content creators/artist.
Copyrights were original created to protect content creators but starting with people like Walt Disney they started bribing our political leaders and courts to artificially extend copyrights to last way beyond the risible lifespans that copyrights originally had. https://priceonomics.com/how-mickey-mouse-evades-the-public-domain/
Heck it isn't just copyrights that are being abused but intellectual property protection laws overall that are being abused which includes patents, trademarks & copyrights. Just look at the drug companies and how there artificially inflating the prices of life-saving drugs. https://arstechnica.com/science/2016/06/despite-outcry-over-shkreli-brand-greed-pharma-keeps-raising-drug-prices/
I know two wrongs don't make a right but I really can't feel sorry when people pirate copyrighted media or software unless it's a small publisher/developer I see it as a form of karma but once again I don't condone piracy because two wrongs don't make a right. Getting back on copyrighted media hardly anything enters the public domain anymore this is why for the most part I agree with Richard Stallman on copyrights. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_3i7ZX_Gvk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eginMQBWII4
We need to reform intellectual property protection laws, make them more fair and risible and balanced so that they benefit everyone and just a few very powerful people.
