Comments: Copyright Is Broken And Nobody Knows How To Fix It

The problem is that Copyright mistakenly had its domain extended into cyberspace (the Internet).

Extending copyright into cyberspace is just as absurd as extending it into human minds, e.g. "Re-imagining scenes from Toy Story is a copyright infringment since you are making derivative copies".

There is a simple fix: restablish copyright's territory to be the physical, tangible world. It's leaked into cyberspace and it shouldn't be here.
