2020-01-22 Copyright is failing

Cory Doctorow writes on BoingBoing: In serving big company interests, copyright is in crisis. (Also on EFF DeepLinks.) As so often is the case, he writes well.

2019 was not a good year for competition in the entertainment sector. Mergers … reduced the number of big movie studios from five (already a farcical number) to four (impossibly, even worse).

And the list goes on. Hollywood screenwriters. Disney. Taylor Swift. YouTube. They all get mentioned.
