I mean Copyright as “intellectual property which gives the owner the exclusive right to copy and distribute the creative work”

Copyright is theoretically a good idea but what ends up happening the last few decades is that it’s just become about companies that abuse the system to hoard as much intellectual property as possible. It’s absolutely ridiculous that most of the time an author’s work belongs to a company, and a company will run it into the ground even after the author’s dead (see: Spongebob). And they keep extending copyright dates because Disney keeps whining while owning most of the entertainment industry.

Then you have stuff like Alan Moore’s works. The man has gone insane from how much they milk his works and make bad interpretations of it.
