I guess that depends whether you are (a) someone who enjoys music and art and culture, or (b) a parasite
Peer-to-peer file-sharing on the Internet has certainly weakened copyright, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing unless one equates “stronger copyright” with “better copyright.” According to the US Constitution, copyright is about promoting “the Progress of Science and useful Arts”; it’s not about enriching authors […]
[T]he most pertinent question to ask is […] Has file-sharing reduced creators’ incentives?
My knee-jerk answer is– of course not! More people are creating and publishing creative works today than at any other point in history. But I didn’t have any data to back that up, and knee-jerk reactions only work as a basis for policy when Republicans are in power, so anyone who hopes for meaningful change in the US copyright framework is going to need more ammunition. Fortunately, someone has actually done a bit of research now, and you can read more about it here.
