Crosbie Fitch: Copyright doesn’t guarantee to authors a minimum wage
Thanks AeliusBlythe, for an experienced authors’s perspective – as to what copyright is really worth to a writer (99.9% of which are not ‘best-selling’), as opposed to a publishing corporation.
Too many of those indoctrinated by copyright seem to think that it guarantees authors a minimum wage for each hour they spend writing (and a good chance of Rowling-esque success on top).
All copyright’s ever guaranteed is that printers/publishers can crush competitors/pirates if they want to. (and if they can afford the lawyers).
