tmesisSnowflake Royal Independent content creators would massively benefit on streaming and video services.
There's absolutely tons of copyright abuse stifling creativity there with big rights owners taking revenue from them.
Tom Scott has a pretty good video on why copyright law is horrendous given modern technology and industry.
It can be pretty draconian on youtube, but part of that is the inability to mediate. If a rights holder claims copyright infringement then that's it.
Get hit with three strikes and your channel is taken down.
There have even been videos where people have been talking about abuses of copyright law, and defending musicians who've been accused of copying, and been told their video is infringing the copyright of the band they were defending.
The principle of it though is that some people think they should be able to take somebody else's work without credit or payment, or even make money from it. And that's what it boils down to. Songs aren't just things that bands happen to own, that they can exploit. They created it. If you don't want to pay the price for an album, or even 99p for a digital download of a song, then don't pay it. Just don't whinge that it's your right to able to get it for free, because it isn't, nor should it be.
I bet if I started a channel on youtube, and just lifted the content of one of these independent creators, and monetised it, they'd be furious.
This isn't really the place so I'll leave it with this... you seem to be conflating pirating current or recent content with adapting it and with the copyright duration.
No one has suggested copyright shouldn't exist at all.
