I think before my GOVT continues with this BS and other countries continue letting them the idea of Piracy needs to be re-evaluated.
I believe that most forms of art and other types of Intellectual Properties are simply an extension of something that already exists.
Here is a perfect example
You can use an image to create your own as long as you don't profit from it...
But if you use said image to profit even if changed it is
Piracy unless you get permission from the original creator.
This would be Piracy as the Image is clearly a play off of the original.
Where do you stop or start protecting...
The idea is to protect Intellectual Property to make it easier people to continue innovating and creating.
But I think the protections we are offering are stifling the creation and innovation we mean to protect.
