  • yes, they make some sense.

    They are following the original sense of copyright law as I feel to have understood it, anyway.

    In ten years or so later in a career to have essentially joined if in if a special corner of the media industry, this whole area of rights feels a constantly sinking morass.

    One 'ought' to be able to link to what is publicly presented, for purposes of example and comment. I would say, even when that is part of making money.

    What wants to be owned should be privately disbursed.

    As it is, one feels safe only when creating or having created unique content every time.

    Micropayments? Might make things better, but greed abounds.

    The problem is that current interpretations of the law allow no balance and judgement, from any frame of view.

    Own all the world, and it stops.

    Regards, and thanks for brain-energising posts, Denise,
