Copyright is dying. The entertainment industry is crying wolf. The US is trying to force legislation down our throats. I don't like the taste of SOPA or PIPPA. The problem is that the entertainment industry and the powers that be just don't understand what is going on. They are clinging onto an outdated system.

1 of the reasons for online piracy is the antiquated way publishing agreements and product releases are handled. Just take movies, why not roll them out world wide the day after the premier? If something is in the theaters in the US, there is no reason with digital theaters it cant also be in Australia or the UK at the same time.
People really will not be denied access to something when they know full well other people have it. It will drive online piracy until they change the system.
Copyright is based on the notion that ideas are property. Idea is a thought or collection of thoughts that generate in the mind. An idea is usually generated with intent, but can also be created unintentionally. Ideas often form during brainstorming sessions or through discussions.
Maybe we should take a step back and just realize that there are only a few ppl in the world that really have original ideas. Most of us are just recycling stuff. Building onward on an idea from some1 else.

Luckily there are a lot of examples where ideas are free and you can do whatever you like with them. Two examples:
Inspired by Creative Commons and the open source software movement, the FMA provides a legal and technological framework for curators, artists, and listeners to harness the potential of music sharing.
The Internet Archive is a non-profit that was founded to build an Internet library. Its purposes include offering permanent access for researchers, historians, scholars, people with disabilities, and the general public to historical collections that exist in digital format
So go out there and remix, edit and share.
