Copyright valuation generally depends on the value of future revenue attached to the copyright. This future copyright value is then discounted using the discounted cash flow methodology (DCF) to arrive at the present value of those cash flows. Each type of copyright has key sensitivities to consider such as the duration of the copyright and the expected lifetime of its creator. Another key consideration during copyright valuation is what drives the value of the copyright. For instance, a living musician generally supports their back catalogue of recordings through personal appearances and new releases, buoying their copyright valuation. After their death or after the musician stops recording their copyright value may diminish more rapidly than expected as the support is no longer there.
The illegal downloading of content affects all of us who currently enjoy the benefits of a vibrant and successful publishing industry. Seven million people download unauthorised content in Britain, and research shows that these people will purchase nearly a third less as a result. Creators need financial returns to survive, and publishers and authors depend on being able to protect their content so that writing, illustrating and publishing can remain commercially and creatively viable.

His second round of activities was not appearing for our weekly strategy meetings. By the third time he did this, and upon my calling his wife (The one he left his first wife for) she said, "Leave it up to me, Ron. I'm tired of his shit." Later that day I called her to find she had called the police on him, and he was taken to a facility for psychiatric evaluation. His wife had him put on meds a... an effort to prove I was at fault for his on and off again sales. The truth was, he was the problem with sales. He ended up getting less sales, and eventually gave the majority away. His wife put him in a separate bedroom, and he eventually died. I did break even, but this was a major stress and pain in the ass experience. There is more to it. This is just the abbreviated version.
