double edged sword

"a system that is more friendly to copyright holders" although may not sound bad initially, will in the end favour existing media-barons as the ones having the biggest arsenal of copyrighted material.

This will turn the interwebs into a traditional news outlet that is so much loved by everybody.

OTOH, the existing mentality that everything is free for grabs does not give anyone its rightful piece of the pie.

Tricky...
