I am not a fan of the moral police thank you. Morality isnt even the right concept, the right term is liberty. It is my liberty to own what I create.You don't understand what you are talking about. Copyright exists to serve society. The government temporarily restricts the natural rights of everyone to distribute works as they by granting a monopoly on distribution on a specific work. The financial incentive from that monopoly promotes the creation of new works. Copyright expires, the work then enters the public domain and society is enriched by having access to new creative works. Copyright, like all government granted monopolies, is simply a practical requirement not granted because you are special snowflake who is morally entitled to it.
So somehow my wood carvings are going to make corporation take government handouts? Arent you jumping to conclusions there just a little? And why exactly should my child be deprived the benefits of my life long work? Seems a little selfish on your part to steal my families inheritance just because you are jealous that I did something with my life and you did not. And where does this ultra fair philosophy of your stop? Will you be calling me immoral because I do not share my earnings with everyone? Which isnt true since I pay tax's.Copyright exists to allow an author to make a living writing books rather waiting tables, or recoup production costs on a film. You don't need 120 year copyrights to make a living being an artist, its simply a way for heirs or corporations get money without doing any work by getting a government handout.
