Linkers might enjoy the latest Koltai rant on Copyright, the US Monetary
system and P2P.

My conclusions are:

Lessons Learnt.
The concept of Government in association with big business is to
maximize profits - regardless of the social or environmental costs,
through the use of content restriction, re-writing history and coercion
through trade agreements and funding methodologies that benefit no-one
but the lender. 

The United States of America appears to be the architect of this Global
Central Bank based scheme designed exclusively for maximizing the flow
of dollars from us (outside the US) to them, (inside the US).

Copyright is an artefact designed exclusively to encourage the
continuation of a society based on debt. A situation that benefits few
but harms many.

Copyright does not benefit the authors and creators to "actively
encourage" new work. It creates forward contracts which are then funded
by debt.

The elimination of draconian (overly extended period) copyright laws
would free up the world to new levels of intellectual enlightenment,
content creation, wealth creation and ultimately provide the utopian
lifestyle for everyone,  that so many strive for, so very hard.

That all Governments consider reducing Copyright to a maximum of 5 years
for all articles, books, movies, songs.

This is commonly the mandated maximum period of taxation write-off.

Physical articles (with the exception of some large investment ticket
items) are usually depreciated to zero after five years.

After all, why should a digital product receive a more beneficial
recognition by Government than a physical article.
That surely, is a serious disincentive to the entire world to produce
anything that adds to the wealth creation of a nation.
Possibly the world should take a leaf from the Chinese example. More
production, less legislation resulting in more jobs, a more buoyant
economy and considerably less crime. (700% less crime according to the
USA prison population
