Musicians sue over 'zero pay' copyright fix

Anonymous Coward

When I see these kinds of issues being endlessly debated it really does occur to me that we desperately need to get to a post scarcity society.

When we can be as creative as we want without the need to work for money, copyright would become superfluous, along with about 95% of the government bureaucracy that we currently have.

I'm sick to my backteeth with all this obsession with the minutiae of the small technical details of "private copying", "media conversion" and "fair use" I'm reminded of the pointless bickering of religious nutters debating the fine point of religious belief. Meanwhile, none if this makes a jot of practical difference to musicians or composers.

I won't see it my lifetime, and at present I'm not hopeful for my grandkids either.
