I thought book writers were already ‘starving’ compared to film-makers, video-game companies, etc; it doesn’t seem like the utilitarian argument has much merit here.
I’m not sure what you mean. Of course they’re ‘starving,’ since most of the money from their copyrights goes to their publishers rather than to them.
That’s true, I meant in the sense of total revenue of books being substantially less than the other fields.
