Non Copyright-Protected Industries Fare Better Than Their Counterparts
Pop Culture Pirate Elisa Kreisinger’s shared this great TED talk by Johanna Blakely from 2010. It may be old but the lesson remains pertinent (and largely ignored): non copyright-protected industries, like fashion, innovate more and compete more readily than heavily copyright-protected ones. Their gross sales are better too:
This flies in the face of traditional wisdom that without ownership, there is no incentive to innovate.
“Right now those industries with a lot of copyright protection are operating in an atmosphere where it’s as if they don’t have any protection. And they don’t know what to do,” Blakely observes.
