i'd rather live in a world with knock off merch run rampant than the copyright hell we're in
@whiskers imagine a world were people could actually build off each other's work
Instead of inventing the wheel for the xth time, because all other wheels are copyrighted
But but .. muh profit?!
@whiskers I mean, it'd be a lovely change of pace for a few decades, if nothing else.
@whiskers In a copyright-free society corporation can take someone's life work, copy it for free and outsell the original inventors, pushing them out of business without any compensation.
@zloygik they're already pulling that shit rn
