Let Nobody Tell You There Wouldn't Be Days Like These

Copyright Symbols
SOPA, PIPA, ACTA. Megaupload raided by the FBI, bit-torrent websites shut by the Feds (only to reopen the next day under a slightly different domain).
Yet with all this witch hunting and lobbying for copyright holders, with their money almost buying politicians at will (they even admit it - see here), one thing seems clear to me. It's inevitable:
Can you really imagine a world where, in ten years time, we will not be able to listen/watch/read whatever we want, whenever we want to, and at a decent price?
I can't. And it's obvious why: the company that offers a solution that gets us nearer this utopia will be the next Spotify/Amazon. It would be the company that rules the market.
