Most likely, they'd just make it worse.

February 20th, 2012

Adrian Hon would like us to consider his modest proposal:

Imagine you're a new parent at 30 years old and you've just published a bestselling new novel. Under the current system, if you lived to 70 years old and your descendants all had children at the age of 30, the copyright in your book – and thus the proceeds – would provide for your children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren.

But what, I ask, about your great-great-great-grandchildren? What do they get? […]

(What they deserve?)

Seriously, it's not a new rebuttal but it's rather nicely done. The satire-blindness exhibited by multiple commenters makes for entertaining, if depressing, reading.
