Copyright and exclusive IP rights should be 15-25 years, not 100 years. Posted on May 25, 2023 by Anonymous Copyright and exclusive IP rights should be 15-25 years, not 100 years.
But then israelites would still be alive when it ends, instead of already dead.
You sure about that?
Patents are dumb and anti free market
Patents and copyrights are especially harmful to software and hardware engineering, especially robotics.
NOO MY MONEY WTF
20 years is enough time to grow up and potentially come up with the same idea yourself.
It's just legalized monopoly.
Copywrite and exclusive IP rights shouldn't exist. We didn't need patents to invent the wheel, why should we need it now?
Fuck off, Copyright is the only thing that actually promotes real competition. If after 100 years the only thing you can muster up is to copy a 100year old idea then you have no place in this world. You are worthless. Come up with a new idea and make real competition that provides actual meaningful difference to the consumer.
China already exists if your end goal is shitty piss poor quality knockoffs of real shit.
>Copyright is the only thing that actually promotes real competition.
>placing restrictions on abstract concepts is promoting competition
Why would anyone spend money on R&D when it's going to be copied the next day? Why play it safe and wait to steal something yourself?
Where's the incentive to innovate?
Are you retarded? It always works out to 3 choices, the first, the popular, and the alternative
Look at hot sauce or video games, dumb nagger
Star Wars was only good while it was unlicensed Flash Gordon doing its own thing and became shit when it started becoming its own brand of licensed shit to sell the works of hacks (aka George without oversight and Gisney). All of this shit deteriorates heavily once it starts to stretch past the boundaries of its original making, especially with the current trend of trying to keep everything "canon" in an extended universe since the rights holder now has so much reach.
That's not mentioning the cultural consequences of bombarding someone for their entire lifespan with iterations of the same slop.
2024 for SBW.
copyright and IP needs to be constantly enforced by their respective owners, which is a constant and costly endeavour, so in practice a metric ton of IP ends up being, practically, public domain anyway.
We need common sense copyright laws
copyright should be 1 year max
No shit, but good luck prying Mickey Mouse from Walt Disney's frozen hands
50 should be enough
Patents are like 20 years now thanks to lobbyists. The drugs go from dollars to pennies once the patents expire. And of course ~~*they*~~ will try to argue a 20 year long patent is essential to fund drug research but I fall to see how making x100 or more ROI for a few years isn't enough for them to fund their next product research. The problem is that "lobbying" the government to get legislation passed in your favourite yield so much ROI it actually surpasses doing real work.
2 years patent. Not "first to file", but as it was before lobbyists fucked it.
5 years copyright. 5 year monopoly should be enough. As a compromise you could make it so that it automatically falls into some creative commons license after the 5 years, where it's "free" with some strings attached: give credit to the original authors, not for commercial use. Then after 10 years it enters the public domain where it can be used for whatever.
10 years trademark with 10 year renewals if it's still in use is fine as it is.
Competition is what drives innovation. The founders of America only ever caved on "intellectual property" because they could see some benefits of granting very short monopolies as a kind of incentive to create. But even then they hadn't considered things like corporations would get so big and last for so long. I think if they were around now they'd just get rid of it altogether, as it's easier to do than just breaking up all the corporations.
in addition, the Disney corporation should be dissolved, and all of its assets should be seized
