"On a fundamental scale, it's a human right that someone who writes a piece of work should have control of it," Gibb said in a statement, adding that a change could discourage newer songwriters from producing tomorrow's hits"
True enough - that would be nice. If it was still feasible. If this was still a disconnected and / or centrally controlled world. If permission-denied would actually mean it's not possible. If lack of license means no use. If refusal means maintaining control. If value is defined by having control.
The thing is, Berry: we don't live in this world anymore. Once we release something it's the users fka consumers that control it's use - and we urgently need to find a way of making what they already do legal. This illusion of total control is not going to generate benefits for creators and rights-holders.
