Qod Stephanie Reisner on the importance of copyrights

As an author it frustrates me that people should think I should spend thousands of hours on a manuscript and then give it away freely to whoever wants it. Because I can live on air and my love for writing. lol! I say all challengers of [Intellectual Property and Copyrights] ...should put in 40 hours a week for 52 weeks producing reading material for the general masses (see how easy it is) and then just hand it away for free. It will never happen. I'm betting a lot of them wouldn't be so against IP if they actually had any or made a living as an artist. For some of us - that's what we do to survive and we do it well.
