Here's another regarding the "Amen Break". Easily one of the most important 6-second loops of music that most people will instantly recognize.

It gets into copyright in the latter half.

Where credit and debt are trading our futures for now, copyright is strangling the cultural prosperity our society could have and effectively doing the same in a different way, but for culture rather than finances. Although they interrelate.

Great but it's not like having to pirate something ever stopped me from reading it.

Hard to pirate books that have never been digitized. Publishers would rather books be lost to time than to do anything that could hurt their copyright claims.

Do writers get paid when people check their books out at the library? I don't understand why we can't just read every book we want online.

No they do not. This is permitted because the physical copy was bought and put in the library. This is the "first-sale doctrine" in the US.

I don't understand why we can't just read every book we want online.

That would create a new copy every time someone viewed/downloaded it. You may agree or disagree with that interpretation and then agree or disagree on whether that is an acceptable use not not.

Sonny Bono was the head-asshole in charge of getting the Copyright Term Extension Act passed, which then became known as the Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act aka The Mickey Mouse Protection Act. Archive.org was being derisive in calling it the Sonny Bono Memorial Collection, which is what I find hilarious.

Good. Copyright law is bullshit anyway and is only used to further the jews’ money.

The spirit of the jew is born in the void of knowledge traded for wealth.

I'm find with trading knowledge for wealth, problems only arise when the first guy to find the knowledge is awarded a monopoly, and uses it to restrict access.

Very limited copyright and patent is necessary for many things. We have no limits on our copyrights now and that is complete bullshit. They keep extending it when it should be contracting. There is no reason it should last more than just a very few years (2-5) and it should only cover direct copy and not derivative works.

i'd say 15-25 years is appropriate. 2-5 years is pretty short for someone who may have spent that amount of time or more on their books.

Can you give an example? I can't think of any.

If you produce anything worth copyrighting like me, no it's not. It's how I feed myself.

Sorry, should’ve clarified. Copyright law should only be 14 years like it was originally, not this insane 90 years just to further the profits of the jew.

Under the original terms set forth by the Founders, you would retain exclusive copyright in your work for 14 years, and you would be able to renew it once, bringing it to 28 years in total.

That is more than enough for you to eat on.

Copyright laws prevent Jews from stealing things.

Well, to take the example of hollywood, it mostly prevents small artists from competing with Jews who made it big.

Copyright has been extended excessively thanks to the lobbying of large corporations. A reasonable term for copyright would be fifty years from date of publication, or the lifespan of the author. That would insure the author was potentially able to make money from the work during his entire lifetime, but it would allow the work to come into the public domain immediately, or shortly, after the author's death. For example, if an author published a book at age 20, and died at age 71, the book would immediately be in public domain; but if the author died at age 60, the book would come into public domain 10 years later.
