Pro or anti-copyright?

Anyone have strong thoughts about copyrights, either for or against? Interested to hear the "against" perspective - and how it affects your business!

  • I am pro copyright. Having been through an ordeal with the first publisher of my two novels, I can tell you that without a copyright, writers' options are limited.

    If I learned any lesson from that little literary vignette, it is that a literary lawyer can be your best resource.

  • I think it depends on the piece and the creator's desires for it.

    Personally, as long as it does not infringe on privacy, access, progress in industry/research channels and does not seek to criminalize consumers, it's OK.

    Eleanore - What kind of issue did you run into, specifically. From what I understood, all written works are automatically copyrighted. Can you elaborate on the issues you encountered?
