Capitalism is becoming more a religion than a market structure and questioning its validity invites sharp criticism. The market structure says that everyone is eligible for actions which fulfil their own interest and everyone is eligible to act in a way which is fulfilling selfish motives within the domains of the law and the constitution. Thus, when a copyright material such as an e-book is published online, it will be sold online with payments made online by the purchasers. The e-book thus published which is sold can be easily copied in a several formats and can be redistributed and printed to be sold as first duplicates at a much lower price. This is possible and is happening in several countries, which has seen a decline in the access to the original e-book thus published. When it comes to self-esteem and understanding one’s duty towards the country and constitution, some people in spite of having access to cheaper substitutes will go ahead and purchase the original copyrighted products, whatever the price. This is one part of the story, but those who are in smaller business and have restricted sources of income, will eventually dwell into scrupulous practices which converts original books into copies and are sold in the grey market. These products are also bought by people who are price conscious and are looking for important information at cheaper price. So the whole intention of copyrighting a material or an e-book has weakened in its meaning as it is not able to restrict copies to be formed and duplication to happen. This has also made the publishers consider the price they pay to the author because if the e-books will be easily copied it makes sense to pay a lesser price to the author. The price of the original and authentic book will also be less since duplicates when flooding the market at lower prices will force these originals to reduce their prices straightaway. Thus, the copyright in books is a difficult concept and a wholly new legislation will be required to safeguard the creators’ original content.
In case of movies, the scenario is much worst as any new movie being released will have a copy of its print online and available for download. The capitalistic market system gives rights to everyone to act in their own self-interest, making them more confident about doing such things which eventually benefits them. This particular liberalisation of the market is ruining the rightful money from the ones who are genuine and are legitimate source of consistent creation. Movies have been making money by transporting its prints across the globe, but there is an equal number of duplicate reprints available online which make the copyright claims redundant. Again, the copyright law is also not accepted by everyone across the world as the best way of encouraging creative arts and works of various kinds, because all countries have had different experiences and the repercussions of copyrights have been varied.
