Criticism of copyright laws and patents is a taboo but it shouldn't be. With initially good intentions, copyright and patent laws are concentrating more and more profit and power within the hands of right holders, which in most cases is big corporations, labels and studios. It's dangerous to free speech and privacy in the Age of the Internet.

Copyright is unlike any other right. It gives the class of authors supreme position over the rest of society, while treating everyone else as criminals when they want to exercise their free speech and property rights to the full extent.

Copyright is the exclusive right to reproduce and distribute someone’s work. It’s the right to make copies of a protected work, hence copy-right. Patents are government protections on improvements and inventions in devices and processes.

In reality, copyrights and patents are monopolies. Monopolies where only the right holders are allowed to profit from the resources. It’s a monopoly because the more copyrights and patents the government protects, the more restricted people are in exercising their property rights.

Imagine you and your neighbor both mine stone on your respective properties. Then your neighbor decides to build a sculpture out of his stone. In the world of copyright, the very pattern of this sculpture is now protected under the law. That means no one else is allowed to take full use of their property and make the same sculpture of their own. Since you also own stone, you are allowed to do everything except for making that sculpture.
If your neighbor was to start mining stone with a pick-axe, they could patent this new production method and for 20 years, you would not be allowed to use a pick-axe to mine your stone on your property.

The more people make copyrighted works from their stone, the less and less property rights you can exercise with your stone. The more patents are registered, the more restricted you are in what you can and can’t do on your property. That’s because the logic behind copyright and patent laws treats ideas as scarce resources when in reality, they are infinitely abundant.
