EU consultation on IT (and a bit on copyright and DRM)
The EU has started the Public consultation on post-i2010: priorities for new strategy for European information society (2010-2015), wanting to know how to regulate Information and Communcation Technology for the next 5 years.
Most questions are not all that relevant for the people here (nearly all questions are optional to answer, so don't worry about that), however some questions are relevant for all consumers, so if you're an EU citizen let your voice be heard.

Anyone have a clue what to answer to "6.5. What would facilitate the emergence of business models not based on territorial copyrights?"?

How about an international registry of content-creators (individuals and agglomerates) and their current and past enterprises? A diminishing-returns payment scheme for registered creators, based upon attributed use and funded by taxes collected in all participating territories would provide support for ongoing creative endeavours and maintain pressures on the artist for quality and relevancy the way much of the market currently does, but would prevent run-away success (like J. K. Rowling's) from dominating funding while still rewarding it. The creative content would be free to all, and the taxes would be higher (accounting for, perhaps, the money spent by individuals to buy books, CDs, movies, etc.).
