Link: “Intellectual property is theft” by Dominique Cyprès

Original post found at: https://write.hamster.dance/intellectual-property-is-theft

A very thoughtful post about how modern copyright law stifles certain kinds of artistic expression, and how it also doesn’t guarantee that artists get paid for their creations, in spite of most of the defences we hear of it. It makes the case that it’d be better to have more easygoing copyright laws, and a UBI to guarantee an acceptable standard of living for everyone, including artists – an argument I’m very sympathetic to 🙂
