|Nearly twenty years ago I started reading things from people who were saying we need to abolish copyright and patent systems or society could get a lot worse.|
The bad news is I think a lot of the predictions from two decades ago have come true.
The good news is I think there is a lot more data and a small but growing number of people to start taking up this cause in a serious way.
I haven't read too much on how the USA could go about peacefully abolishing copyrights and patents and transitioning to a world where every child has access to the world's best information, regardless of where they were born.
As much as the vengeful side of me would like to see people like the RIAA punished, I really could care less if we came to some type of last payoff to the #ImaginaryPropertyRegime, because I think when we get rid of #ImaginaryProperty we will see an economic miracle perhaps unlike any other, so giving people in that industry some type of small parachute I'd be fine with.
I'm looking to fund/support serious researchers in the policy world who are studying this.
Anyone know of any?
I'm looking to give out unrestricted grants between $1,000 and $25,000, though I will ask for an email in writing that the researcher will make their outputs available on GitHub or GitLab in the public domain.
Email is in profile if you are interested or know of someone who would be.
