    If clicking on “Read more” automatically deducted 50 cents from my credit, it might clear my conscience and pay the author. Well, it might if 300,000 of us did, like at the Guardian.

    To RIAA/MPAA… or you could take a few less bucks. Do you really have to take 98% from the box office at the high point? Can the low point really not go any lower than 90%? Is forcing the cinema chain to rob us at the concession stand (as an alternative to not existing) really so apocalyptically crucial?
    Does an artist really have to be made to live on 1/16 of a cent from every dollar he makes you? Will it really break the bank if you paid him 1/8 of a cent? And does that 1/16 of a cent really have to be fully recoupable? Yes, you read that right.

    A bit retro – “home taping is killing the music industry” anyone?

    to continue to be successful the guardian must print without fear or favour, if it becomes just another opinion piece for the right wing and big business then it will disappear, the australian and telegraph give most of their papers away free to claim imaginary circulation figures, those papers are only kept open to try and keep the trickle down tories in power and are losing billions of dollars, most likely the death of murdoch will give the shareholders at news the opportunity to change things for the better but in the meantime people depend on crikey and the guardian and other decent publications to get their news and not a media barons opinion.
