The problem with Bill Monroe idea is that it would require an army of lawyers to enforce, literally. It would also clog the court system with lawsuits over copyright infringement cases. The problem is technology has over taken the source and power for news and information. The only way to have a system work the way Monroe would like is to have every purchaser of technology buy a license that is tied to a clearinghouse to rake in the royalities for copyright uses via internet. If everyone is a potential news consumer, reporter, producer, director, etc, we are all nothing because of a system, so vast in size and scope, that is impractical and impossible to police and be held monetarily accountable.
