The studios and publishers are suing people and campaigning even for even tighter copyright laws because they believe that artists should be supported. Right? Remember that? How do these same people feel the people who actually produce that same content should be paid? These people "are now being asked to accept even slimmer payments for ad-supported streaming of TV shows. And that's slimmer as in nada." Right. Nothing. That's what the publishers really want to pay artists. Just like in academia.
