Hollywood chins were loosing revenue and tits through pitch correctors were leaking profits. Governments were forced to step in and ensure that good money can still be made from bad content. So we get stricter legislation on intellectual property to protect artists. Whoop dee do. Doesn’t protect me from shit, if anything it just makes getting movies and music an expensive pain in the ass. I’m not selling anything so this law provides me with nothing i need. I’m just trying to be an artist and get my fake names out there. So now, if i have to spend money on something i used to get for free, the added expense is going to cut into my already slim music production budget; consequently this law is then hurting me as an artist.
Quick run on the numbers, are there more poor artists like me or Superstars?
Not to mention artists whose art is about remix.
Bullshit law. It’s to help the rich get richer. Then they turn around and use that money to monopolize the media and exclude struggling artists who actually need propping up. bastards.
