Submission + - A Monopsony for the Music and Movie Industry? (dreamhost.com)

SocialWorm writes: "Over at Original Cin, I've written some musings on how it may be possible for a group of technologists to form a gatekeeping nonprofit to wield monopsony power against the music and movie industry, and other copyright holders: "...given that current copyright law gives monopoly power over information for a very long time, how can this be done? I suspect that some clever contracts, marketing, and technology can combine to effectively force the information monopolists to submit to the public good.""
