Comment A humanist position - (Score 1) 1006

A humanist position would be that which most benefits humanity and human beings. Corporations are not human beings. Money, profit margins, products, economic principles, social systems, concepts, traditions and laws are not human beings. Opposing violence and ignorance in all forms is at the core of humanist proposals. The free flow of information, ideas, and communication benefits humanity. Copying information qualifies as communication, the flow of ideas. So "copyright" and "copy-no-rights" and patent law is censorship, simply. Which is clearly demonstrated by the raids, prosecutions, arrests, spying, censorship, etc on anyone who openly disobeys the copyright law. Yes, the economic systems create diffculties, too.
