Copyright isn't GOING bad - it's always been bad, ever since the privilege was granted to the Stationers' Guild by Queen Anne in 1710.
What's going on is that more and more people are discovering that their natural liberty to share and build upon their own culture has been suspended by an iniquitous 18th century anachronism.
