Copyright

All artists and writers need to live. Any work of writing and any work of art needs to be protected and people should be paid for their work. If you walked into a shop and took a paper without paying for it you are a shoplifter. If you illegally download a movie you are still stealing.  Most artists and writers are struggling and they need other sources of income.

People have a right to the fruits of their labour. Copyright and royalties are the means our creative community can receive the fruits of their labour.
