I just wrote a post on Ev's new Medium about replacing copyright with creditright. I'd like people to discuss it, so I'm linking them here. Read there. Talk here. Pass around. Please.

- Copyright has been mutated into a tool for the "intermediaries" between the creators and the audience anyway: Music labels, book publishers etc.
Remember when audio books were new, and some book publishers had the gall to release audio versions of books they were licensed to print - without telling or giving any money to the author? They had some very strange interpretations of copyright and publishing contracts then...Aug 18, 2012
- I wish only that you would not use the term "moral right." It comes from the French Civil Code tradition, and is very different in character from the US/UK tradition. Call it an exclusive right, like the US Constitution's language says. We are fortunate in that our Constitution lets Congress define what exclusive rights authors and inventors get, even if they haven't actually been doing that in a clueful way for some time now.Aug 18, 2012
- : I see, in the front pages of many books authored by UK writers, the phrase "moral right."
Do you know when this entered usage? (I don't see it in books authored by N.Americans, BTW)
just curious...Aug 19, 2012
