|This might not be a very popular opinion but the more I think of it the more I believe we should abandon copyright.|
You can argue for example that someone took a lot of time to create something and that a copycat can profit from this in an unfair manner.
But most of the time a copy is not as good as the original and most people don't want a copy but even pay extra for the original.
Since there are a lot of smart people on HN I would like to ask this question here: should we abandon copyright?
Note: I don't believe this will ever happen, but I wonder what the upsides will be.
