A couple of articles to set the scene:
“we’ve continually lengthened copyright terms from 14-28 years as set out by the Statue of Anne in 1710 to “lifetime plus 70 years” today.“: http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/technology/adrianhon/100007156/infinite-copyright-a-modest-proposal/
“The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which President Obama signed on March 23, 2010 now authorize the Food and Drug Administration to approve generic versions of biologic drugs and grant biologics manufacturers 12 years of exclusive use before generics can be developed.“: http://www.news-medical.net/health/Drug-Patents-and-Generics.aspx
It can’t be morally right to have patents lasting 12 before copying (ie, sharing more cheaply) is legal, while a piece of music or book are locked-down for lifetime plus 70 years, yet through our laws, this is the reality.
This is the crux of what is wrong with current IPR/copyright law today and why DRM, copyright, etc, needs to be rolled back to a more suitable and moral level, such as was the case in 1710 when we evidentially were a more civil society.
What is fundamentally morally right, should be legal, not illegal.
