Repeating my Twitter reaction:
When will musicians realize that their biggest competitor is ALL THE PAST RECORDINGS EVER and revolt against this madness?
The Internet is not what makes music hard work. Never was! It's competing with Elvis & Mozart.
Demand the right to build on the past, not compete with it.
@HerraBRE And when will people start listening to other artists than musicians and painters? Copyright is a severe obstacle for my dramatical activities and in effect leads to plays not being made.
@lilletale @Wolf480pl Also, have you tried arguing copyright with musicians or film makers or painters? Many of them totally believe in the current system really hate the idea of "infringing" upon their rights.
It's their pension! It's their legacy! For their kids!
The big corps may be the ones with the lobbying $$$, but it's the creative people that influence culture and values.
If they stopped believing the hype and spoke up, the lobbies would be exposed for the corporate shills they are.
Generalistic and moderated instance. All opinions are welcome, but hate speeches are prohibited. Users who don't respect rules will be silenced or suspended, depending on the violation severity.
