One thing that’s missing in this discussion is actual data. There’s a lot of supposition — to be sure, seeming reasonable suppositions like few artists (and their helpers) would produce art (whether film, music, literature, or whatnot) unless they had something like a copyright. Now this would seem to be somewhat amenable to empirical analysis, especially since there are entire industries without much in the way of copyright protection, such as food and fashion. Does anyone believe creativity is low in either of these industries that copyright protection would cure?
