    IMO most people want to do the right there, so if products are appropriately priced I don't see piracy as being a big problem. Counterfeit sales etc are a bigger issue since people can be mislead etc.

    the models created by big dominating businesses suck too. e.g. app stores taking a huge percentage, or music services not fairly distributing royalties... These are systemic problems that are structured against (smaller) copyright holders...

    Good intentions are not always enough - another piece of a rather annoying long-term problem is that banks don't ``allow'' efficient transactions for tiny prices. I think the web would be a commercially viable platform for copyright holders when this issue is solved, possibly never.
