Why Copyright Is Broken

When over half of those asked in a poll admit to breaching copyright law - which means the real number is likely to be much higher - there is clearly something wrong with that law. It indicates that copyright terms need to be reduced, rather increased, which is the current trend, and fair use rights made explicit and wide-ranging. Otherwise we can expect more and more to ignore the law, which is hardly good for society.
