Crikey, Steve!
So we're now saying that copyright results in fewer books. But better books.

(It also occurs to me that any drop-off in French Book publishing between 1789-1793 may not be solely attributable to copyright issues, eg the trimming of the aristo market by emigration and decapitation (that'll slow down your reading); the fact that all of the bourgeoisie were busy writing and reading pamphlets and monopolising the printing presses; and the fact that Madame Defarge and her chums stopped reading Mills & Boon while they engaged in more engrossing interactive pursuits).
