No, actually they don't. Fundamentally it all comes back to the performer and the performance. Film fundamentally changed a performers placed in the world. Prior to film anyone who wanted to see their act had to see them. After film their act could be recorded once and played forever, especially later when sound and color were added. TV changed things again in that people no longer had to go to a movie theatre. And now the digital media revolution has once again changed the dynamic.

In each case in the past the market eventually came up with a system that left all sides feeling reasonably fairly treated. Legislation will in no way help the process that will need to take place this time to make that happen again.

If you had better tools, you could more effectively demonstrate your total incompetence.
