Perhaps as a society we should just do away with this monstrosity of a dinosauriod hemorage inducing system. And U know... I don't know socialism this shit... so artists can get payed fairly based on the merit, popularity, or other measurable, qualitative variables of their work... U know we wouldn't even have to have some gulag of a system, we could have multiple ways of doing this. We could even have privitized funds for this!
But not with our current bullshit way of selling and trading empires of bullshit that does not and will not ever, really, technically, 'belong' to anyone in perpetuity.
Just a thought, oh, and happy New Year slashdot.
