Scott Turow Interview: Artists’ Rights
New Artist’s Income, Voices In Jeopardy
Scott Turow is an active, well known artist’s rights advocate, and someone who does much to balance the goals of a free society and balance the needs of content creators, and preserving artists’ rights against the technology companies who hope to profit from looser copyright policies, to provide content more freely online.
…Scott quoted William Blake, the visionary artist and poet of the 18th Century who said, “[A] blight never does good to a tree, & if [the tree]. . .still bear fruit, let none say that the fruit was in consequence of the blight.” Creative drive can often withstand periods of blight; but as Blake says creativity is “not in consequence of the blight.”
