6. No. This way didn't give a huge bunch of money to the RIAA and the studios.

 

The effect on the actual workers who made the film was pretty much nil.

Intellectual property, as a concept, is as stupid as saying that everyone is born owned by someone, and owes a lifetime of work to them.

When people who wash a car acquire a permanent right to a profit from anything done by anyone who USES the washed car, I'll think intellectual property reasonable.
