This is a complex issue and needs to be looked at more carefully.

Artists should be allowed to place locks to protect their revenues, but there should not be academic paywalls.

No, because reliable news and educations shouldn't be for profit, and they already profit off the ads on the sites. I shouldn't have to pay to access articles that have information I need.

I think as long as the content was used in fair-use then leave them alone.

(This is a copy of someone else's stance that I fully agreed with. All credits to this go to @TOFUTOFU) I don't believe that pirating for an individual's personal use should have any serious legal consequences. However, claiming the work as one's own, profiting from the work of someone else, or the vast distribution of a work you don't have the rights to should have consequences. Artists/content owners should be allowed to place locks on their content at their discretion, while also having realistic expectations of what it means to release their work digitally. The best efforts should be made to support the work of artists and to prevent the theft/other people profiting from the use of the work and illegal redistribution of their work.

Yes, but set limits on the price of media and reduce punishments for violating copyright laws for individuals.

Yes, but these locks must not be exempt from fair dealing uses (including personal research or study, protest, satire, etc.). Users must be able to circumvent these locks for purposes of fair dealing.

@8LG95RHfrom Alberta  answered…2yrs

Yes, as long as they are only enforced for a limited and reasonable time.

They should protect artist but that means also reinforcing and protecting fair use. As most music is made with similar notes and beats. ie. the lady gaga lawsuit but also online content like the court case with H3H3 vs Hoss
