    <p><a href="http://twitter.com/diveintomark/statuses/4669170574692353">RT @samablog: The real scandal is that a band that broke up over 40 years ago still enjoys the protection of copyright #Beatles #iTunes. <cite>Mark&#39;s Firehose</cite> (2010-11-17)</a>.</p>

But without lifetime-plus copyright, how will Sir Paul McCartney ever manage to put food on the table? If he doesn’t get that extra $0.99/song tariff until decades after his death, how will artists ever be properly incentivized to make music?
