Is our copyright system basically fair? Does it exacerbate or ameliorate
the skewed distribution of wealth in our society? Does it do anything at all
for disempowered people, people at the bottom of the socio-economic hierarchy?
In this Article we engage these questions. Our goal is to begin a more
comprehensive discussion of the effect the copyright system has on the allocation
of wealth in our society.
