OK, I see your point then :)
But I suppose my point of view is - what about a novel or a piece of
music is it that needs investors?
Sure, the average VC may want things big enough to invest in, but that
doesn't mean every 'business model' (everything from which some
people can make a living) is going to be of sufficient scale.
The argument that musicians (authors, photographers, etc - pick your
favourite) should be big so they can be invested in, or musicians
should be big so they can lead a rockstar lifestyle leaves me quite
(and I'm not saying you said this, I'm addressing the general argument)
'Copyright is good because it leads to mega corporations' is not, I
think, an argument that anyone would encourage in the cold clear light
of day - at least I hope so :)

Sent it back to the poster *again*! Sorry Chris.
