- The idea of a default of rights being restricted should be abolished. On the contrary, if there are costs that need recovered, then the registration should be applied for specifically.
- The idea of forever being compensated should be dropped. Once the investment is recovered, continuing to “recover” it is absurd. Possibly recovering up to twice the investment makes sense as an incentive for investing in endeavors.
- For life saving inventions governments or corporations should take on the investment in return for development of the country or for corporates, the profits from the fruits of it.
- Where an investment is made, it makes sense to have an additional charge till it is recovered, which should be reversed when recovery is made.
- Alternative ways of earning from the creation should be encouraged where possible. For example most open source software coders earn from services related to them – either customizing it or installing/trouble shooting.
- The idea of having done something in the past being entitlement to earn from it forever without doing anything at all should be stopped.
- Sure, some things will be exceptions – things that need continuing research and updates, for example.
- However, this is about the money. Other rights, as to the creation being attributed correctly, for example, are important to uphold. Forever. Because it is that person’s contribution to mankind.
- The main goal should be to not restrict access to knowledge, or if any restrictions are needed for recovering investment, they should be minimal and monitored closely. So you may have a music album releasing for a certain price first, and then again at lower cost in a few months or year (depending on how it sells). Copying of the music itself should be free (remember you already earned from the film?)
