Is anyone discussing copyright laws concerned that if something become public domain, the original owner may not invest in it anymore?

I'm not sure I would be happy in a world where Nintendo didn't make Mario games, because they had little control over his public image . . .
There's also the reverse problem of a company driving a series into the ground or letting it stagnate. A company could stop caring about a product and yet still release it just because it'll keep their hold on the product and any money it makes. But it's not like someone should be able to say "Nintendo isn't making Mario good anymore, therefore I should be able to make it better!" either.

"Companies should not get to sit on their IP's forever and never do anything with them. Use it or lose it."

So theft. If I don't use my baseball bat someone should have the right to come take it from me. If I create something it should be mine. PERIOD.

To turn things around a bit on the talk of copyright, why should public domain exist? Aiming this question at everyone talking about copyright. I feel like it should, but I can't quite put it into words into why I think that.

Making good progress with the second chapter. :)

Still work in progress.

(Real life, it is chronically the fourth chapter that I am making.)

They spent their whole life to build that wall and the empire, an empire that enslaves them." :kaoswt2: I'm just going to turn it into a modern-day sad tale.

No edits, just gameplay from one area to the next. Plus all my new shiny interface stuff... And I even remember to bolt down the portal so it won't escape this time. :kaopride:
You guys just freely offer up your Autonomy?
I don't know about you, but today the covid frustration is seriously getting to me. Haven't really seen many of my friends for two years, since i moved towns the year before this all started, and well, i miss them :(
so, here's a cute alpacaraptor sketch to heighten the mood:
