there needs to be some kind of reform to bring copyright laws into the current eraPersonally I prefer the previous era, which in my country went like this:
To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and DiscoveriesSee how that works? In 1789 there was no concept of “intellectual property”, i.e. “I had this idea first, so nobody else is allowed to think it until 120 years after my last grandchild dies”. What there was, instead, was the idea that inventions and creative works benefit everyone.
The European Union has rejected controversial legislation intended to reform online copyright. 318 MEPs voted against the draft law, compared to 278 in favor. The legislation now returns to the drawing board, before being sent for a second vote in September.
