    And he really is both sides of dumb and dumber.

    He deserves impeachment as I recall,

    I really don't care about Trump at all...


    It's not as good as that old Judy Collins song, but it may very well fit. 🙂
    Judy? Try Joni. I love them both however. I've looked at clouds from both sides now from in and out and still somehow, I really don't know clouds at all.

    Absolutely. We have much more to offer in the intellectual, education and defense industries. I think it's time Britain responded to the demands of the future instead of catering to the demands of the financial industry. Isn't it the very definition of insanity to continue to do the same thing over and over and to expect different results?

    "Much more to offer in intellectual and education"?

    It is the academic sector - heavily reliant on foreign researchers and students - which is hit hardest by Brexit!

    OK. I'll add copyright to that. The US might find the UK useful in terms of negotiating copyright with China in the printing industry by way of an example.

    edit. I don't claim to know how this all fits together. But I do recognize copyright as probably THE issue of the future.

    It's rather clear that you don't know "how this all fits together."

    My recommendation to you would be to get informed before casting a vote, and barring an ability or willingness to do so, to listen to the advice of informed individuals.

    That sounds like b****x to me Kazetnogidea. So you're advising me to listen to contributors whilst not actually contributing anything other than I'm right that I don't understand it?

    Thanks.

    I'm aware and informed that I don't have the time or inclination to be as well versed on the subject as other members of this site and would forever be playing catch-up.

    I feel obliged to stick my proverbial 'oar in' as I firmly believe there are many ways in which we can find alternative solutions to the problem in the hope that those better informed may either find inspiration or contempt for my discourse. At least we will have explored more options. I'm sorry that you chose the latter.

    It seems to me immediately obvious that if and when the printing industry takes off. It is likely that high street shops will be replaced with specialist printers. We will no longer buy products but access to copyright. China has been taking the Micky out of US copyright for quite some time now and I don't expect that to ease with the advent of printing. Quite the opposite. So why not incorporate intellectual copyright, design and assembly into the education system? Wouldn't the UK as a trusted education system be a good place to provide a buffer for such an industry? Please excuse my ignorance in these areas. I'm just saying things as I see them.

    Of course, this forum suffers from a shortage of cocksure opinionated ignorance,
    which Christopher Albon proposes to remedy (sarcasm intended).

    There are some international agreements when it comes to copyright law, but there is no international institution that has the authority to enforce international law and other international agreements. In other words, it really is a national issue and it will remain so until such time as supranational institutions with binding laws emerge - as it happens, the only such institution currently in existence is the European Union. Unfortunately the EU cannot enforce copyright law outside its borders.

    In terms of "industry," there really isn't much of an "industry" associated with copyright law.

    That sounds REALLY complicated. I wouldn't even know where to begin researching this. Thank you for taking the time to explain it to me.

    edit. I WILL do some research on this. Very interesting.
