    The biggest reform I want to see to copyright is a use-it-or-loose-it provision. Either you make the work available under “reasonable” terms, or you loose the copyright protection. Preferably this should be combined with a requirement of all copyrighted works past a certain size to be registered with the library of Congress.

    This would still allow them to double the price, and move streaming from Netflix to their crappy homebrew streaming service. The idea is just that if you aren’t selling it at all, you clearly don’t need copyright protections to save you from others undercutting you. This would also solve the abandonware problem; where it is simply not clear who has the rights in the first place.

    My second wish would be a mandatory licensing scheme; similar to what we have for music (although updated for the internet age)
