A business model that needs laws to prop it up is broken.
Copyright and Rights Licensing
Upon which the GPL is based, as well as just about the entire entertainment industry. It's difficult to imagine a studio spending tens or hundreds of millions on a production based on the hope that no one would copy and distribute the resulting product without seeing to it that they were compensated.
Upon which the drug industry, chip industry, etc., is based.
While these mechanisms are clearly not optimum, they do seem to benefit society in general. Certainly they are strong supporting factors for progress in the fields that they act as rights bulwarks for.
I really don't see that business models based on associated laws are inherently broken. Would you care to elaborate on your position?
