i don't think that anyone in this thread has suggested this. i think
most people on this list probably agree that many of the ways that
large corporations have succeeded in getting copyright law changed
have created an "unreasonable" situation with respect to copyright.
however, a separate problem remains that even if one were to stipulate
terms that most people might agree are wholly reasonable, its hard to
see how to enforce these terms at this point in time. this cultural
change makes it much more difficult to use control over expressions of
one's own ideas as a means of making a living.
