I advise you to read about the history of copyright. First laws similar
to copyright were not invented to pay the creator. They were invented to
pay the publishers, especially the pressmen. Primary when the first
copyright was invented (in Germany 1832), then the creators were
included. Culture before has worked and developed very well without
copyrights. Copyright has caused, that culture since then has more and
more been privatized. Culture has the role to teach our children. But
copyright causes, that culture is produced to earn money, not to teach
children well. I don't think that copyright is a good idea in general.
But i agree that if there are copyrights, then the focus should be on
the creator and the benefit to society, not the publishers.
