How do you see the defense of royalties in an increasingly digital future?
Creative intellectual work product should still be protected and rewarded in digital age. If not through royalties, some other form of registered and shared or pooled compensation with overall flat use tax but originator compensation tiered based on use.
Going the way of the tea tax.
I think the answer to this will come from technology and its producers, not from lawyers. Just when the slogan "Information wants to be free" seemed to be carrying all before it, new ways have begun to emerge to make information worth paying for. Economical online music-buying services proved more effective than heavy-handed lawsuits at taking business away from pirates. And so on.
As a fan of the arts and a friends of creative and recreative artists, I care that they be able to live by their work. I think that will remain possible, though the shape of the future will, as always, defy pop futurologists.
The copyright regime must be reformed.
Not my area of expertise.
from where i come from, royalties defenses have not much been increasing,
A promising scenario in the first world, and very hard in the third world.
This is outside my area of specialism
I strongly believe that royalties are still necessary because royalties are the rewards that creators of content receive for their 'products'. If there is no reward, in the long run no new content will be created.
it will require attention to detail. With the ability to steal come the ability to monitor
I am unsure as to how to answer this question but to say that we must all (including lawyers) must think of ways to embrace the digital future.
Royalties should be standard in the digital age. It is the only way to compensate those creative individuals' information that makes its way onto the Internet or that is easily transferred (and pirated). Many companies are now utilizing as standard the royalty system and embracing the use of mass media, while compensating the creator.
More control must be kept of a person's intellectual property but this is not my area of expertise.
