The Wealth of Copyright, 5 year after US v RIAA

The MPAA and RIAA are successful in shutting down the digital Internet for conspiracy to defraud copyright holders.

With the demise of large printing presses, IT departments  have attempted to keep the now paper copy of the Internet up-to-date by employing one of the fundamentals of the digital Internet, crowdsourcing. To undertake this massive task, teams at MIT and UC Berkley have released a new brochure for chaining together laser printers in order to concurrently print copies of the now defunct illegal digital Internet.

During the digital Internet, users who wished to receive a copy of a website would follow things known as hyper text links, which would then display a digital duplicate on the monitor.

In 2016, the US Supreme Court handed down two rulings, which set the stage for the end of the digital era. In cases, filed by the RIAA and MPAA, that received class action status against all US citizens; the groups asserted that the Internet was actually a massive conspiracy to defraud the executives of RIAA and MPAA. The court found for the entertainment barons, acknowledging, that the only feasible way to completely eliminate the threat of digital duplication was to regulate the Internet.

The sweeping ruling by the court set forth a tide of legislation to prohibit any non US government approved vendors from selling visual displays and monitors. The court and congress and concluded all monitors are capable of displaying a digital duplicate of any piece of information, regardless of its copyright status. Therefore, monitors cannot be sold without strict government oversight to protect copyright holders.

Though some rogue elements continue to operate beyond the reach of the law, employing cobbled together devices that are still capable of displaying both legal and illegal content. Most citizens, however, have embraced the change. They are comforted by the billions of dollars is new capital injected into the US economy by the previously poverty stricken companies, on the verge of ruin following the beginning of the Internet.

MIT and UC Berkley are still working on new ways to write and copy information into the web. Until then, the continued advice is a blue pen for new content; red pen, on an existing paper copy for updates.  And, as always for attachments, such as images and video; paper clip to the parent page and mail directly to the Library of Congress.
