"Socialist Commodities" lmao okay Dengist it's not like commodities hold the entire form of capitalism in their production and consumption or anything
"Markets are when your capital is defended by the red, white, and blue imperial machine" - some dumbass tankie probably

@riking I usually imagine the ideal copyright length as something like 10 years. Though lately I've been thinking of making copyrights require a cost to maintain that goes up steeply over time, to discourage people holding onto a creator monopoly they aren't making active use of just because there's no cost in doing so.

More seriously, the way that copyright law has distorted the human process of creativity and imposed the requirement to make works seem to be WROUGHT BY A SINGLE INDIVIDUAL FROM THE VOID even when that isn't and could never be the case is pretty harmful overall.

Limiting derivation is surely a useful and interesting creative exercise, of course, and a perfectly fine thing to do to create interesting works, but it's a bit farcical to outlaw a good chunk of how stories and music /worked/ for centuries just to prop up a business model.

Gotta love how all of the development labor I am capable of doing is allocated solely to proprietary development because I, yknow, need to eat

Hey everyone who knew me when I was 16 remember that time when I constantly ranted about how proprietary software is an existential threat to human rights

small formfactor PC folks are the best because instead of everything being a mess of tempered glass panels and RGB lighting they're in a perpetual game of tetris with tiny computer parts

If the consequences for breaking a consumer protection law can be itemized the consequences probably aren't harsh enough
