Making a point, 22 July 2009
Author: Henk Storm from Netherlands

I feel the need to write this comment because it made me think about the copyrights on aids medicine for example. Some of the copyrights preventing the making of a cure to safe lives must lifted. Life is more important then the profits of corporations. This becomes a more gray area when they talking about the copyrights on music and this documentary isn't very objective in this matter. Which is a good thing. The anti-copy lobby isn't very objective as well. Nice to see the other side for a change! Making a copy of a CD and sell it is illegal. But buying a new CD in Holland cost € 50 for 12 songs in a poor quality plastic case. That's more then € 4 a song and you do not want to know how much the artist gets. The rules must be changed. Protection of property is good but evolving is even better. Restore the balance please!
