From: Thatcher Graham "I have never seen anyone who works with media argue
that patents are too "soft." Doesn't the ARSC typically argue that copyright
is already too harsh..."
I'm afraid lots of ARSC people want to exploit recordings that they didn't
pay for creating. As I said, the rationalizations for weakening copyright
are endless. "Preservation" is a pretty common one.
Unfortunately the consequence will be (some would argue already is) lots
worse new recordings in the future. I think it's really magical thinking to
suggest otherwise. Do we really want a world where the only quality choice
will be historical recordings?
