Quotes

Professor Roger Wallis: I support copyright, but only if it has a function of encouraging creativity, or economic incitement, or is an incentive to create. Not the way copyright is developing now, as a huge control mechanism for people who sit on large swathes of rights.

A Lesson about the greed that exists in society today
9 February 2013 | by chevchelios63See all my reviews

As one of the 25 million users TPB i feel incensed at the forces at work to shut down this amazing site. They claim to be protecting the Artists who make music and movies possible, but all they are worried about is 'the old way of making money'. It is a clash of generations, on the one hand you have the dinosaurs, driven by greed & getting filthy rich from the efforts of others. On the other, you have a bunch of realists, people who have realised that times are changing faster than anyone could have imagined.

The current model of Copyright has no future, it is an over priced relic from a time where the ability to share so easily was impossible. The Spotify/Netflix model is the only future for this industry.
