El fallo del actual sistema de derechos de autor

La profesora de derecho de la Wayne State University, Jessica Litman, ha afirmado en una entrevista lo que a mi juicio constituye todo el debate actual acerca de los derechos de autor:

It's one of those areas in which the statutes are effectively negotiated by the affected parties [...] What's happening now is that we're trying to apply this law to a couple hundred million consumers, and it doesn't make any sense to them, but when consumers try to get involved in the copyright law making process, they're not being welcome.

El asunto es claro: los «consumidores» son también parte afectada y la regulación actual (y la futura) no tiene ningún sentido en absoluto. Se trata de un mercado y no conviene olvidar que los «consumidores» son ante todo propietarios.
