How would IP laws and copyright be handled under socialism?

Would it be abolished or just reformed? How would artists be compensated if not for royalties?

Also, what about “hard cases” like instances of cultural appropriation, etc.?

Let’s have this discussion.

Abolished completely like anything else that blocks creativity.

Easy, copyright is a form of property and will be nationalized along with other key industries. IPs or whatever they’ll be called will belong to the party-state to use as they see fit

Temporary creative monopolies for the creator until they are finished i.e. a writer creates a universe in a book series for example that lasts three books, once all three books have been released it belongs to anyone including the reader who can create their own stories within that universe and publish it. The reason I say temporary monopoly is because some writers want to tell a very sweeping story and prefer it to keep its integrity within the author’s vision and once that story is complete people are free to be as creative as they want in expanding that vision.

As an artist myself i am more than qualified to answer.

>How would IP laws and copyright be handled under socialism?


They wouldn't

>Would it be abolished or just reformed? How would artists be compensated if not for royalties?


Abolished completely, for what exactly would the artists need to be compensated for? all ones basic needs would be met under socialism, and the process of creating is rewarding enough for true comrades, just take a look at the piece of socialist realism I've attached to my post, the revolutionary and communist values it will inspire are more than enough compensation.

>Also, what about “hard cases” like instances of cultural appropriation, etc.?

If the books are successful at all the writer will just keep adding books to the series. If they have anything particular to offer as a writer (and even if they don't tbh), people will still want to read the "real" version of the story despite hundreds of fanfictions based on the stories.

All media should be available through a centralised portal which tracks how many people accessed it, artists should continue to get paid as long as their work meets a minimum standard of popularity. If it doesn't they will be asked to get a regular job and can pursue art in their free time until such a time as they meet the minimum popularity.

 No.1732887

The "original intent" of copyright was to protect the profits of writers and publishers. The answer depends then on just what kind of circumstances they're working in under "socialism." I use quotations here only because socialism is deceptive of a transitional period that well require and enable different attitudes towards IP as the circumstances evolve.

The less need there is for profit to sustain creative endeavor, the less need there is to provide a monopoly on IP. Ensuring certain rights to the creator isn't necessarily harmful and might be useful even under socialism. Say for instance you've got an author in the Democratic People's Reunified Republic of Korea that has published a book or something. Their work should still have some kind of protection in case some fucking American corp rips it off and starts publishing it for a profit without that author's permission.

Ultimately I think it comes down to whether or not someone's work is being used to generate profit, and how they're doing that. If the point is to enable creativity, then some act of qualitative transformation has to occur at least. Anime Abridged serieses for example, using footage from DBZ or whatever, reedited, with new scripts and new voice acting to make something new. Or things like Star Trek fan films, which are considered "derivative" of the Star Trek IP, but are more or less entirely new things created without any assistance from their owner.

Personally I think that anything that costs practically nothing to reproduce is fair game. Napster and BitTorrent made digital media virtually worthless. Maybe there might be circumstances where it's beneficial to provide a monopoly on that kind of produce, but if so they should be very limited.

All artistic mediums should be without any restrictions be allowed to be critiqued, parodied, influenced and adapted.
Films should be made without any artistic restrictions, neither should any graphical and physical art.
There should never be a prevailling socialist art style, either. It should be dynamic and not through a capitalist producers reliance of fads or trends (which he would use to ensure a profit) i.e market research which dominates capitalist art and restricts films into becoming sloppy unoriginal pre-packaged consumer messes. It should be dynamic and naturally change with new schools of artists.

Have you never taken a course in art history or anything? Art's value isn't in it's popularity, least of all when it's first made. The more novel something is, the less likely it is to be popular in the first place. There's plenty of examples of art that's nowadays considered valuable or influential or important that at the time was completely ignored or even hated. The work of Monet and the impressionists was considered junk and Van Gogh wasn't popular in his own lifetime. When The Rite of Spring premiered people rioted. There are countless movies and bands and plays that the public slept on at the time and didn't become famous until years later. The Confederacy of Dunces is considered a classic today but it wasn't published until after the author's death because it was rejected everywhere it was submitted. Hell, if it weren't for all the fucking weirdos on the internet making shit for themselves and their other insane computer friends you and I probably wouldn't even be here.

And that's all aside from the fact that art is an iterative process that requires a lot of trial and a lot of failure before something "popular" is created. Popular YouTube creators Videogame Donkey and Hbomberguy both have talked about how they started off making total bullshit that appealed to absolutely no one, and that constituted a significant part of their early careers before they developed into the artists that they are now.

But even aside from all of that, a person should have the absolute right to make art even if it appeals to no one, not even themselves, for no reason or any reason at all, regardless of whether some supervisory board of cunts thinks there's any value in it or not.

 No.1732958

>>1732939
Obviously anyone should be allowed to make art but there needs to be some kind of standards if they're getting paid to do it out of the common stocks. Like okay if we're totally post scarcity then labour vouchers aren't a thing but we're nowhere near that point if there was socialism today. Like how is that fair if one person has to go to work hauling roof tiles and someone else is just sitting around doodling stuff that nobody likes? Yes obviously art can be great even if nobody appreciates it but there's not really any way to evaluate it other than popularity unless you're suggesting we have some kind of council that oversees all the works and decides what is 'real art' that should be paid for

even in your hypothetical scenario: the internet exist, it isn't the 19th century, you as the consumer have access to both the original work and the reproduction. consumers will choose to support the author
maybe the state-owned online bookstore could have an algorithm to inform the people of any potential plagiarism, and that would already do more than the current ip system

decadent bourgeois elitism. how many leeches should society maintain for the sake of a potential van gogh? they can make their super special art in their spare time. if it becomes popular only after their death, bad luck

"Sitting around doodling stuff that no one likes" is how you get good at art.

Really this sounds like typical "well people won't do any work if someone doesn't make them!" type shit capcucks say. If the idea is to keep people from avoiding "real work" then making a system that recreates the circumstances we have now isn't to do it. Hollywood is full of useless cunts that make mindless popular bullshit in order to get rich and spit on the people that do their plumbing.

I don't think this fantasy is yours of people giving up fulfilling work just to make trash is really worth worrying about. It's some real "well if people don't have to worry about going hungry no one will clean the toilets" type shit.

Who dreams of cleaning toilets? Nobody, so yes there needs to be a degree of compulsion to get people to do it. If we live in magic communism where there's toilet cleaning robots to do everything then great I guess it's not an issue but this is reality here. Making art for a living is a privilege, many people just do art as a hobby and never try to make money off it, I don't see many people cleaning toilets as a hobby do you?

I don't like a lot of Hollywood shit either but the fact remains that some people do, the people who make it are creating a product that fulfils a demand. In socialism they wouldn't be super millionaires for doing it, just paid the same as everyone else, you can call that not art if you want but I'm sure a lot of people think whatever you like 'isn't real art' also.

What is your alternative? Someone gets paid for the rest of their life to 'get good at art' but there's no actual requirement to create any? How exactly do you verify that they're even trying to practice? Meanwhile others are busting their asses at difficult and unpleasant jobs so that society can keep going?

Artists and Artisan as an Artist Sees It
https://www.marxists.org/archive/morris/works/1887/commonweal/09-artist-artisan.htm

>I have nothing to object to in our comrade’s remarks, but a word or two may be pardoned in explanation of the fact that an artist is looked upon as a gentleman (a sort of one), and sometimes receives a certain portion of the respect accorded to that class, which, however, is dealt out so much more liberally to the mere money-maker in other trades; to the landowner, manufacturer, contractor, stockjobber, or what not; in short, it is dealt out to members of the proprietary class exactly in proportion to the obviousness of their living by owning wealth and not creating it. In other words the less pretence they make to be more than mere thieves, the more they are honoured.


>However, let that pass, as it must be admitted that the artists when they gain the point at which they receive any recognition from the public at all, do as hangers-on share in the plunder won by the class to which, if our workmen friends knew it, they are admitted somewhat grudgingly. Now, it must be admitted by all thoughtful people that the conventional flattery of the intellect, which is conventionally supposed as a separate and specially worshipful quality, to be the main-spring of the artist’s capacity, is both stupid and harmful. But like all the rest of our conventionalities it is founded on history; it is a birth of the individualist commercial system which we are at work combatting to-day, with good hope of seeing it disappear. It is that system which has divided the old craftsman into two, artist and artisan. For, before the rise of capitalism in the sixteenth century, the artisan did not differ in kind from the artist; all craftsmen who made anything were artists of some kind, they only differed in degree, and only a few of those who had very special gifts of hand and brain have so much as left their names behind them. No one knows, eg., the name of the man who designed Westminster Abbey, although it rose up amongst the King’s Court, and doubtless was talked about enough in its time; and meantime every joiner or mason or blacksmith was doing his share of work towards the pleasure which our comrade feels is necessary to the life of man, and never dreaming of receiving any special reward for the beauty or invention in his work; although doubtless he did receive the unconventional and genuine praise and thanks of his neighbours for it, just as he gave it to his neighbour craftsmen. With the growth of the historic sense which is a gain of the present century, with the knowledge of the continuity of history which we have now learned, we have come to a conscious knowledge that the intellect of man works co-operatively and collectively; but although the workmen of the Middle Ages were not conscious of this fact, they were happier than we are in this respect, that they practised that cooperation in their production of beauty; whereas we, as long as we are under the domination of the profit-grinders, cannot do so; and the result follows which I have so often spoken of, that art is a skinny drowsy skeleton amidst the stir and enormous riches of modern civilization; and that too in an age, which as I have just said, has discovered that it was the collective people, and not a few miraculous individuals who have produced all worthy, that is all genuine, art in the past. I say when art is hopeful and progressive there is plenty of it for every one, and every one is in some sense an artist, and those who produce beauty are not demi-gods but men, and all can understand them; it is only when beauty produced by man becomes rare that we take to deifying its producers. There is little that is mysterious about the plagiarists and compilers of the Augustan age of Rome; the authors of that mass of Platitudinous rubbish, that fresh flowing well-spring of stupidity, are well known and amply ticketted. But modern research has made Homer a dim and doubtful shadow to us, while it has added clearness to our vision of the life of the people of that time, who were the real authors of the Homeric Poems. Beowulf, the first and the best poem of the English race, which they bore hither the across the seas with them, has no author but the people. No other authors has the splendid literature of our Scandinavian kinsmen, the best tale-tellers the world has seen, through whom we can to-day live with the people of Northern Europe in the tenth century, and know them, not as puppets of chivalry romance, but good fellows such as our living friends are to-day. Again, along with William Cobbett, contrast the dungeon-like propriety of St Paul’s, the work of a ‘famous’ architect, with the free imagination and delicate beauty of the people-built Gothic churches, that were raised by masons who had no architect over them, and who did their work for the reward of a free life, and needed no fame as an extra; and then consider how the people build. In short, our comrade will understand me when I say that what we want is to extinguish not the artist, but the mere artisan, by destroying the flattery craving flunkey in the one, and the brutal toil-worn slave in the other, so that they may both be men; in which case they must be artists in one way or other, that is, they must take an interest in life.


>Meanwhile, I cannot see that any extra reward should be given to a man for following an ‘intellectual’ calling. If he does his work in it well, it is more pleasurable to him than a ‘non-intellectual’ one, and why should he be paid twice over? If he does it ill, let him be pulled out of it in the gentlest way possible, and learn to do what he can do. A poet doesn’t need paying for his poetry (he is not paid much now), because he will write better poetry and not worse if he has an ordinary occupation to follow. As for the other mere artists, a painter for instance, I admit that he will probably have to stick to his painting if he has to do it well; but then he should be paid not for the ‘intellectual’ part of his work, but for the workman’s part of it; finishing up everything properly, doing everything as well as it can be done in all respects. This will take something out of him. But the exercise of his ‘intellect’ will take nothing; it is mere play.


>The long and short of it is this, a decent life, a share in the common life of all is the only ‘reward’ that any man can honestly take for his work, whatever he is; if he asks for more, that means that he intends to play the master over somebody. When the workers have made up their minds to be free, he won’t get that, so he may make himself easy, and get amusement out of his work as he can, if he is a ‘superior person’. Well, I end as our comrade, with the word ‘equality’, which will one day become a real thing and no mere word, and so cure all our troubles.

Wise words, that's all I want really, if someone's art isn't meeting expectations of popularity they should be gently told that they need to find other work.

IP is a bourgeois creation and shouldn't exist. It's literally the enclosure of the commons in the realm of the mind. The end of the open range. A way to apply private property relations to imaginary concepts.

Imagine the opposite, a socialist society that didn't abolish it. That means you'd need to waste the talents of so many people, office space and resources to establish a state agency to police IP.

Art and Literature in Socialist Society
https://www.marxists.org/archive/bebel/1879/excerpt/ch02.htm

>As soon as the rising generation of the new society attains its majority all further development is left to the individual. Each does as his inclinations and talents prompt him. Some choose a branch of the ever more impressively advancing natural sciences: anthropology, zoology, botany, mineralogy, geology, physics, chemistry, archaeology, etc., others take up the science of history, philology, the arts, etc. Still others, nioved by passion, become musicians, painters, sculptors or actors. In future there will be no artists, scientists or craftsmen by profession. Thousands of brilliant talents, hitherto stifled, will now be able to unfold and manifest themselves in knowledge and skills. There will be no longer musicians, actors, artists, scientists by profession, but the more by inspiration, talent and genius. These achievements will excel those of the present day to the same vast extent as the industrial, technical and agricultural achievements of the future society will excel those of today.


>An era of art and sciences will be ushered in, such as the world has never seen before, and its creations will be of a corresponding quality.


>The renascence art will experience, once conditions worthy of human beings exist, was foreseen by no less a man than the late Richard Wagner, who spoke of it as early as 1850 in his Art and Revolution. This work is particularly remarkable, because it appeared immediately after a revolution that had been crushed and one in which Wagner took part. Wagner predicts what the future will bring. In this book he turns directly to the working class upon whom he calls to help the artists found genuine art. Among other things, he says: "When, with the free men of the future, the earning of a living is no longer the purpose of life; when, on the contrary, thanks to the new faith now practised, or better knowledge, the earning of a livelihood in exchange for a compatible natural activity is ensured him beyond all doubt, in short, when industry is no longer our master but our servant, we shall make the joy of life the purpose of life and seek to educate our children able and fit really to experience that joy to the full. Education, based on the building up of strength and the fostering of physical beauty, will, if only due to the untroubled love for the child and the joy expertenccd at his thriving beauty,become a purely artistic one, and everybody will in some respect become a true artist. The diversity of natural inclinations will develop the most manifold trends to an unexpected richness!" That is a thoroughly socialistic idea and fully in keeping with our statements.


>Social life will become increasingly public in the future. This trend can be seen at its dearest from the completely different position of woman, as compared with former times. Domestic life will be confined to the essential minimum, while the widest possible field will be opened to the gratification of the social instinct. Large meeting-places for lectures and debates and for the discussion of all public affairs, in which the ruling decision will in future belong to the collective, eating halls, recreation and reading rooms, libraries, concert halls, theatres, museums, play and sports grounds, parks and promenades, public baths, educational establishments of all sorts, all fitted out with the latest equipment, shall afford rich opportunities for superlative achievement in the arts, sciences and all spheres of entertainment. Likewise will the institutions for the care of the sick, the infirm and the aged conform to the highest possible standards.


>How paltry will our much vaunted age appear in comparison. This fawning for favour and benevolence from above, this dog-like cringing, this jealous struggle for positions of privilege, in which the most hateful methods are employed, along with stifling of convictions, the veiling of good qualities that might give offence, emasculation of character, simulation of views and feelings–all those qualities which can be srtrr2med up as cowardice and unprincipledlzcss, now come every day more and more distinctly to the fore. Whatever elevates and ennobles man–self-reliance, independence and incorruptibility in his views and convictions, his freedom to assert his personality–is considered in the conditions prevailing today mainly as a fault or defect. These properties often ruin him who possesses them, if he cannnot suppress them. Many are not even aware of their degradation, they have grown used to it. The dog regards it as a matter of course that he has a master who, when out of temper, gives him a taste of the whip.


>With the above-mentioned changes in social life all literary production will undergo a radical change. Theological literature, which accounts for the largest number of titles in the annual catalogues of new publications, drops out together with legal literature. There is no interest shown in the first and no use for the second; publications concerned with the daily battles over political institutions will also disappear, because these institutions will no longer exist. The relevant studies will become part of cultural history. The vast mass of inane publications-evidence of corrupted taste, often possible only through sacrifices made by the author out of vanity–are gone. Even speaking from the viewpoint of present conditions, it can be said without exaggeration that there is such a vast mass of superficial or harmful books and of obvious trash in the field of literary production that foul-fifths of all writings could disappear front the market without loss to a single sphere of culture.


>Belles-lettres and the press will be hit to the saine extent. There is nothing more lacking in intellect and Inoie superficial than Inost of our newspapers. If our level of cultural achievement and scientific outlook were to be judged frorn the content of our newspapers, it would be low indeed. The activity of men and the general state of affairs are judged from a viewpoint that is reminiscent of the distant past and that has long since been proved untenable by the science of today. A large portion of our journalists are people who, as Bismarck once said, not without reason, "missed their calling", but whose level of education and salary claims fall in with the business interests of the bourgeoisie. Furthermore, these newspapers, as well as the majority of the literary journals, have the mission of circulating most obscene advertisements in their advertisement sections, while their business sections pursue identical aims in a different field. The material interest of the owner determines the content. Literature is generally not much better than the newspapers, for it cultivates interest in sexual excesses, renders homage now to shallow pseudo-enlightenment, now to the most absurd prejudices and superstitions. the aim is to make the bourgeois world–all its shortcomings, which are conceded as trifles, notwithstantling-appear as the best of all possible worlds.


>In this extensive and important field the future society will have to thoroughly put its house in ortler. Yciencc, truth, beauty and debate over what is best, will rule supreme. Everyone who makes a worthwhile contribution will have ample opportunity for participation. He no longer depends upon the favour of a publisher, money considerations or prejudice, but on the judgement of impartial experts, in whose selection he himself takes part, and against whose unfavourable decision he can always appeal to the community, a step that is impossible in newspaper offices or publishing houses today which are guided by their private interests alone. The naive notion that all debate will be suppressed in a socialist community can be defended only by those who see in the bourgeois world an ideal social system, and who, because of their hostility to socialism, seek to slander and belittle it. A society that is based on complete democratic equaity neither knows nor tolerates oppression. Only unlimited freedom of thought makes uninterrupted progress possible, and this is the vital principle of society. It is also a gross delusion to represent bourgeois society as a champion of genuine freedom of thought. Parties representing the class interests of the ruling publish in the press only what dues not assail their class interests, and woe to anyone who should attempt to kick against this. His social ruin is sealed, as every body who is familiar with the situation knows only too well. Many a writer could tell a tale of woe on how publishers handle literary work which does not suit them. Finally, our press and criminal legislation betray the spirit that animates our ruling and governing classes. True freedom of thought is looked upon by them as the most dangerous of evils.

It's frustrating how some socialists are influenced by capitalist reality propaganda. It is already a very common case under capitalism that the actual creators don't own the relevant patents and copyrights. So clearly such mechanisms are not necessary when prizes and grants can do it. You can receive remuneration for making a sculpture without also owning the right to distributing photos of it.

>The "original intent" of copyright was to protect the profits of writers and publishers.
Copyright was invented in Britain as a tool of censorship. Originally you had to submit the work for review first and the profit motive was the carrot to get printers along with it. State violence was to some extent outsourced to the printers. They could destroy the workshops of the copiers.

For most of them, they did not do that well then and not now either. Most people who write books cannot do that for a living. The author who does that as her one job is a rare exception. Our perception of writing is extremely distorted through focus on super stars. Likewise with musicians. If copyright was abolished entirely, then, even without establishing any alternative funding mechanism, the vast majority of live musicians would massively benefit from that change.

<After the founding of the People’s Republic of China, our country gradually achieved the transition from a new democratic society to a socialist society. The socialist transformation of private ownership of the means of production has been completed, the system of exploitation of man by man abolished, and a socialist system established. The people’s democratic dictatorship led by the working class and based on an alliance of workers and peasants, which in essence is a dictatorship of the proletariat, has been consolidated and developed. The Chinese people and the <Chinese People’s Liberation Army have defeated imperialist and hegemonist aggression, sabotage and armed provocations, safeguarded national independence and security, and strengthened national defense. Major achievements have been made in economic development. An independent and relatively complete socialist industrial system has now basically been established, and agricultural output has markedly increased. Significant advances have been made in education, science, culture and other fields, and education about socialist thought has made notable progress. The lives of the people have been considerably improved.
<Article 1 The People’s Republic of China is a socialist state governed by a people’s democratic dictatorship that is led by the working class and based on an alliance of workers and peasants.
<The socialist system is the fundamental system of the People’s Republic of China. Leadership by the Communist Party of China is the defining feature of socialism with Chinese characteristics. It is prohibited for any organization or individual to damage the socialist system.

<Given these economic preconditions, it is quite possible, after the overthrow of the capitalists and the bureaucrats, to proceed immediately, overnight, to replace them in the control over production and distribution, in the work of keeping account of labor and products, by the armed workers, by the whole of the armed population. (The question of control and accounting should not be confused with the question of the scientifically trained staff of engineers, agronomists, and so on. These gentlemen are working today in obedience to the wishes of the capitalists and will work even better tomorrow in obedience to the wishes of the armed workers.)
<Accounting and control–that is mainly what is needed for the "smooth working", for the proper functioning, of the first phase of communist society. All citizens are transformed into hired employees of the state, which consists of the armed workers. All citizens becomes employees and workers of a single countrywide state “syndicate”. All that is required is that they should work equally, do their proper share of work, and get equal pay; the accounting and control necessary for this have been simplified by capitalism to the utmost and reduced to the extraordinarily simple operations–which any literate person can perform–of supervising and recording, knowledge of the four rules of arithmetic, and issuing appropriate receipts.[1]
<When the majority of the people begin independently and everywhere to keep such accounts and exercise such control over the capitalists (now converted into employees) and over the intellectual gentry who preserve their capitalist habits, this control will really become universal, general, and popular; and there will be no getting away from it, there will be "nowhere to go".
China is the highest stage of socialism, having surpassed Lenin's criteria of what defines the higher phase of communist society. Chinese "capitalists" have long since been liquidated— transformed into mere employees, no longer capitalists, and are now proletarians.

In China, the Communist Party has established a thriving class of proletarian artists. These artists do not derive their share of value from ownership, but from scientific socialist value distribution, determined by their need— i.e., are given enough to maximize their development in accordance to the maximal furtherment of the interests of the proletariat— as dictated by The People's will, which is manifested through the mandate of The Party.

this already happens with ip laws, and as long as the plagiarist has a minimum of care/sophistication there is nothing that you can do. if one of stephen king's ghost writers rewords your novel and publishes it under his name you are basically fucked

under a socialist government you could give more channels to artists to let the public know about these cases, and make editorial information easily available so people can check who published what first. you could even have an AI to detect these things and warn the potential consumers (I suspect this is possible with our current technology)

so for example, if I were reading a fanfic or an alternative ending for a popular novel I would expect a degree of "plagiarism", but if I wanted to read an original work I would try to avoid anything with plagiarism complaints on the government database

Putting aside the fact that the abolition of private property and the profit motive would heavily disincentivize this, plagiarism could be targeted more directly under a socialist state than it could under capitalism as theft of one's labor. In an instance where an artist makes a claim of plagiarism, the ruling of courts wouldn't be decided by who submitted copyright first or who has the most capital, but by whose labor most went into the piece. This is the difference between a work that's just heavily derivative/referential, and one that's outright plagiarized.

Hopefully more universal tools/methods can also be developed that allow writers and other artists to maintain a paper trail of what they wrote and when, which can also help hold people accountable.

>>1733296
>This disgusting, liberal notion of socialized art production as "unpaid labor" due to lack of royalties derived from patent ownership

If you think having the most billionaires per capita, allowing foreign capital to exploit Chinese workers, sweatshop misery, suicide nets in factories, Chinese workers taking "meth pills" to stay productive, weeding away the true egalitarian programs that existed in the Mao Era, etc. are "communist" I have a bridge to sell you. The only thing that makes me hopeful about China is, there are still several old Maoists in the CPC who would potentially stage a coup if they had the balls/ovaries to do so.

Communism, as a historically necessary material force, is reducible down to the condition of the subjugation of the bourgeoisie; the Communist nation of China has accomplished this and is cultivating conditions that will inevitably make this condition universal. Egalitarianism in principle, and as a slogan in praxis—as it inevitably is—is strictly a bourgeois principle.

<Article 1: The Foreign Investment Law of the People's Republic of China (hereinafter referred to as "the Law") is hereby formulated in accordance with the Constitution of the People's Republic of China in a bid to further expand opening-up, vigorously promote foreign investment, protect the legitimate rights and interests of foreign investors, standardize the management of foreign investment, impel the formation of a new pattern of all-around opening-up and boost the sound development of the socialist market economy.
The Chinese proletariat exploits foreign capital through socialism. This is evident due to the great distinctions between China and the monopoly capitalist nations. The exploitation of foreign capital is an integral tool to the development of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics.

Bourgeois ideology. The truth is that innovation in art is not quantified by how much it deviates from the values of everyday people but by how much it advances the interests of the proletariat.

Modernist art is a form of aesthetic idealism, which is a form of alienation of the people from their reality. This is because aesthetic idealism negates objective existence and the significance of reality and reduces it to subjective impressions, emotions, and fantasies.

Aesthetic realism serves socialism because it connects the proletariat with their reality. Historically, aesthetic realism supplants aesthetic idealism after the proletarian revolution because the latter is more compatible with the interests and needs of the proletariat.

> It's the exact reason why Top 40 pop music all sounds the same and is incredibly lackluster.

This is due to capitalism, not the singular quality of mass appeal. Top 40 pop music is not lackluster because it appeals to the values of everyday people, but because it is devoid of any meaningful content or message that can inspire action among the masses. In Communist China, the Communist Party of China has administered the creation of humanity's most innovative music and other arts.

>Bourgeois ideology. The truth is that innovation in art is not quantified by how much it deviates from the values of everyday people but by how much it advances the interests of the proletariat.
Innovation in art comes spontaneously in the imminence of creativity. Art as we see in history is something we trace from our earliest archaeological records, from the "lion man" tens of thousands of years ago. Humans like to create representations of reality, which is always within the frame of a discourse. The issue with realism is that it seeks to dilute discourse in the "objective", when perspective is by its very mechanism a subjective activity - even the camera flickers through a framing of its own. The camera is a mechanical eye, and eyes are plugged into brains.
>Modernist art is a form of aesthetic idealism, which is a form of alienation of the people from their reality. This is because aesthetic idealism negates objective existence and the significance of reality and reduces it to subjective impressions, emotions, and fantasies.
Art is not science. Art is something where we give expression to our feelings. And the phenomenology of "the real" conceptually is not a through-line of sense-certainty either.
>Aesthetic realism serves socialism because it connects the proletariat with their reality. Historically, aesthetic realism supplants aesthetic idealism after the proletarian revolution because the latter is more compatible with the interests and needs of the proletariat.
Realism is oppressive to the proletariat because as a mode of self-relation it qualifies them as "workers" and nothing greater, which is the alienation Man experiences under capitalism - where socialism is supposed to be the recognition of Man-as-Man, or the completion of his species-being.

If you go to the comment section of the original, over hour long video, you can find at least five of his comments where he says something along the lines of "this video doesn't once mention anything about Lenin" or "they won't even talk about Lenin's books." He is lying, by the way, because the video features discussion of Lenin's theory, the participants of the discussion talk about the State and Revolution, "Left Wing" Communism: An Infantile Disorder, as well as more recent texts about Lenin's theory of imperialism like Imperialism in the 21st century.

You are a fool if you think the vanguard is going to come from white, petit-bourgeois Trump supporters. As others have pointed out, when white people demand social change they do so because they feel their privileges are slipping and want to prop up the old status quo. When colonized peoples demand social change they do so because they've never had liberation and thus have no interest in preserving anything. We only have to look at American history to see how easily whites have been bought off by social democratic gibs.

>plenty of hip pop disconnected from politics, and plenty of radicalism elsewhere

Like what? You think Oliver Anthony is some great revolutionary artist?

Meanwhile, the most legendary rap song of all time is quite literally an anti-capitalist anthem.

>bullshit, thats just old people disconnected from younger styles.

Why are hip hop and punk so singled out then compare to, say, EDM? Maybe because Black and Latino youth invented hip hop and Jews were heavily instrumental in the creation of punk, no? Maybe because both genres were made by people on the margins of society who were disconnected from the wider mainstream, and thus the wider mainstream saw them as something threatening?

>abstract modern art was promoted by glowies because it was inherently less subversive.

Jackson Pollock was literally a communist who made his art because he hated bourgeois values. He had no idea the org giving him funding was CIA-backed, if that's what you're wondering.

>Art was closely linked to craftmanship (ie something that actually takes efforts and skills) until the modern art bullshit

In what ways does modern art not require craftsmanship?

Oh boy, we had this exact debate in the context of music sampling in the other thread. Yeah, I'm supposed to believe chopping and screwing a track on an Akai MPC to make something totally new out of something old is somehow less of an art than making any other form of music. By that logic, flipping an article of clothing you found at a thrift store into something better and more stylish takes less talent than making something totally from scratch.

I'm not being ageist here, I'm more so making the point that the type of Marxism-Leninism he promotes was already highly outdated by the time he was taught it. His goal is to revive the Browderite CPUSA (mixed with some LaRouche bullshit) which is exactly why he's always on a nostalgia trip. He'd rather prop up Depression-era folk songs as "TRUE proletarian art" than indulge in art/music that expresses the concerns and struggles of the working-class TODAY. It's also why he's so big to dismiss any Marxist theory that comes post-1960 and insists all of it is one big deception played on the left by the CIA. He fedjackets Fanon, about half of the original BPP, etc. for this reason: any leftism that isn't 1930s CPUSA "must" be a trick. And by dismissing it all as a trick, he doesn't need to truly debunk it or explore it or be intellectually rigorous. I remember one livestream he did a while ago where someone asked him about Adorno's Negative Dialectics. All Maupin said in response was that Adorno was CIA. He didn't say anything about the contents of the book or what Adorno's critiques of Kant, Hegel, and Heidegger were, just that Adorno was being funded by glowies. You see the problem here?

It's not a race thing. Sampling has made music far more generic and disposable since you're recycling stuff that was already made and don't need to hire real musicians.

Notice how nearly all the tracks in your video are from the 90s and early 2000s. This was back before FL Studio where if a producer wanted to distort something in a track like making a vocal sample say something it's not saying or changing the tempo on the drums or whatever they'd have to do it manually with a sampler and turn tables. Nowadays all of that can be done by someone with zero talent whatsoever by clicking a few buttons in FLS. Most sampling in pop music and rap sounds like utter shit too.

My point, which you deliberately missed, is that anyone can use a program like FL Studio to replicate all those sampling techniques it took skills to do 25 years ago.

In the 90s when digital typography programs were really coming into their own, it lead to a lot of disruption in the typography industry. Older workers with years of experience, technical expertise, and actual artistic ability were given the boot. There was also the wholesale destruction of tons of typographical equipment like presses, fonts, and the sorts of machines used to create type on the fly before digital production and printing made them unnecessary.

So on the one hand, stuff like the adobe suite makes typesetting technically more accessible, but on the other you have what basically amounts to slash and burn clear-cutting of an entire artistic industry to "cut costs." It's pretty horrific.

A lot of the stuff you'd see on YouTube from 2006-2010ish was very similar to the kind of stuff you'd see on Adult Swim around the same time, e.g. film students making sketch comedy shorts, raunchy homemade cartoons, that kind of stuff. Lots of gonzo journalism. I remember watching a Mexican immigrant activist who would record his encounters with racist Minutemen. I also remember watching lots of lectures from Michael Parenti and Noam Chomsky back then. YouTube was full of them. There was also the feature of making video responses, which created a more conversational aspect of YouTube whereby users would engage in 16-video long debates of responses to one another over some topic like capitalism vs. socialism or Israel vs. Palestine.

It's very anti-feminist of me to say this, but I strongly believe what truly killed the internet was the Amanda Todd affair. What happened to her was horrible and disgusting, but the fallout from her case lead to Big Tech finally having a pretext to censor the internet. All of a sudden you needed a phone number to make a YouTube or Twitter account, which was basically a way for those sites to crack down on people who would make hundreds of troll and sock accounts. Plus internet censorship started going into overdrive. Didn't help that everyone on YouTube wanted to be monetized and monetization standards got stricter and stricter overtime. Nowadays zoomers can't even say "suicide" or "death", they have to say "un-alived". Pathetic.

Chinese socialist copyright law is suited to the unique conditions of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics; therefore, Chinese socialist copyright law would be unsuitable for the conditions of this supposed American socialism. There is no such thing as a socialist America, or anywhere else, for that matter. The only socialist country is Communist China. Chinese socialist copyright law exists to promote the scientific and cultural development of China's socialist mode of production and also to promote the global influence of socialism. Chinese socialist copyright law incentivizes cultural creators to contribute to the collective progress of socialist society. Chinese socialist copyright law explicitly declares that intellectual property is neither absolute nor inviolable and is subordinate to the interests of the People. In every intellectual property dispute in China, the people’s court rules in favor of the proletariat. Communist China’s socialist system of intellectual property is the most advanced and progressive in human history.

I think a much better question is, why is it that reducing peoples’ existence to that of a generic “worker” overtakes everything else as the way towards building socialism? Why hyperfixate on ensuring everyone understands their place as a “worker” over every other aspect of the human spirit. Why can’t socialist nations embrace outsider abstract art and jazz/hip hop as a form of moving society towards communism?

And honestly, do you really think most people in contemporary China view themselves only as “workers?” There are nepo babies from the Mainland (most notably Shanghai) who are little more than Chinese Paris Hiltons; obviously they don’t see their primary existence as being “workers” (inb4 “the existence of Chinese nepo babies is fully in-line with the Marxism-Leninism of the CPC”).

I find that labour fetishists of all kinds are people who dont really have a history of "hard work".
So to me, the aesthetics of martyrdom for an abstracted socialist state is the same fantasy of the servility of the third world in actual terms, where today we have slave labour propping up western powers, but under socialism its apparently "based". The idea of taking pride in being a "worker" is this same discourse.
I have a friend who thinks in the same way, that automating labour is bad because it gets rid of peoples useless positions as human automatons. As if theres dignity in being a flesh robot.
Automation gives prescience to a post-proletariat politics, but capital as we know from marx always needs to humiliate the human, by pretending it is in service of its enobling, like in feudal times.
We're still taught today as children to "work hard" not smart. Its just classcuckery. Hard work is for idiots who think the boss gives a shit about us.

The same way they do now. You would have a property interest in the exclusive dissemination of your IP. Because under communism there would be no market for capital, your ability to profit off your IP would be very limited. Revenue from IP usually comes in the form of merchandising or distribution (eg record labels and musicians or LEGO selling Star Wars toys). Under a state run economy your only option to distribute or merchandise would be through state run and owned corporations. Because the state owns these, the terms they offer IP holders for merchandising and distribution would be, directly or indirectly, determined democratically. Whether someone could make enough off of their IP to live off of it would be a policy decision and it’s likely that a socialist state would periodically change that policy according to economic realities (eg reducing revenues to IP holders during war in order for encourage participation in other industries). For inventions, the state would probably own those since there would be no market for an inventor to try to develop it into a product by himself.

Straw man fallacy.

Value in Communist China is distributed according to scientific socialist laws and methods that govern the development of productive forces and the relations of production. By applying scientific socialism, the Communist Party of China achieves common prosperity of the People and accelerates the transition from the primary stage of socialism, which is the lowest phase of Communism, to the next phase of societal development with Socialism with Chinese Characteristics.

In capitalism, surplus value accumulates to the capitalists. In Chinese Communism, surplus value is distributed back to the People. See these images for undeniable proof of this fact.

Stop with your fallacies, you idiots who say nothing. Choke on the truth. This is not circular reasoning. Look at the material evidence in the images.

THE NATURE OF ECONOMIC LAWS UNDER SOCIALISM
https://www.marxists.org/subject/economy/authors/pe/pe-ch29.htm
(1) The economic laws of socialism are objective laws, independent of the will and consciousness of man. They express the relations of fraternal co­operation and socialist mutual aid of workers freed from exploitation. The economic laws of socialism do not operate as a blind and destructive force: they are recognised and utilised by socialist society. The Communist Party and the Socialist State base their economic policy on the economic laws of socialism.

(2) The basic economic law of socialism determines all the main aspects and main processes of development of the socialist mode of production, the purpose of socialist production and the means to achieve this purpose. The essential features and requirements of the basic economic law of socialism are the securing of the maximum satisfaction of the constantly rising material and cultural requirements of the whole of society, through the continuous expansion and perfecting of production on the basis of higher techniques.

(3) In socialist economy the growth of requirements (the purchasing power) of the masses is the motive force of socialist production and drives it forward. The continuous growth of socialist production is the material foundation for the steady growth of consumption by the people and the growth of new requirements. The priority development of the production of means of production is the essential condition for the continuous growth of socialist production. Socialism ensures the steady development of advanced techniques, essential to the continuous growth of perfecting the socialist production and the ever fuller satisfaction of the growing needs of the working people.

(4) Corresponding to the constantly increasing mass of products for oneself and products for society, the real incomes of the working people are constantly raised. Socialism means a constant improvement in the working and living conditions of the people. It opens up the fullest opportunities for cultural development and makes the entire wealth of technique, science and culture the possession of the whole people.

(5) Expressing the vital interests of the people, the Socialist State guided by the Communist Party develops on an ever-increasing scale its economic, organising, cultural and educational activity, directed towards securing a continuous growth of production and a steady rise in the level of welfare and culture of the people. The development of the socialist mode of production proceeds through the surmounting of contradictions and difficulties. Relying on scientific knowledge of objective economic laws and making use of them, the Socialist State assures the victory of the new and progressive over the old in all spheres of the economy, and directs the development of society along the road to communism.

SOCIALIST ECONOMIC LAW OF DISTRIBUTION
https://www.marxists.org/subject/economy/authors/pe/pe-ch33.htm
(1) In socialist society wages are the monetary expression of the worker's share of that portion of the social product which is paid out by the State in accordance with the quantity and quality of each worker's labour. Arising from the requirements of the basic economic law of socialism and the law of distribution according to work, the Socialist State plans the wages of the various categories of workers in each particular period. It does so in such a way that alongside the growth of the national economy and increased labour productivity, the wage level is systematically increased.

(2) Wages, correctly organised, are a powerful motive force of socialist production. They encourage workers to improve their skill, continuously to improve the technique and organisation of production, and to raise the productivity of social labour. Piece-rates in socialist society most efficiently combine the personal material interests of the worker with national economic interests. The following systems of piece-rates are used in socialist society: simple piece-rates, progressive piece-rates, and piece-rates-plus-bonuses. Time-rates depend on the length of time worked and the skill of the worker.

(3) The purpose of the grading system in socialist economy, is to organise wages in such a way that they stimulate the growth of the productivity of labour, especially in the key links in the process of production and encourage workers to improve their skill. Progressive and technically justified output standards correspond to socialist principles of management. The wage policy of the Socialist State is being carried out in the course of a struggle against petty-bourgeois equalising tendencies. This policy is based on all-round wage differentiation: higher pay for skilled and arduous work, and for workers in leading trades and branches of the national economy.

(4) The basic economic law of socialism determines a steady increase in real wages. Factors in raising real wages are: continuous growth of socialist production and productivity of labour in the complete absence of unemployment; systematic reduction of the price of consumer goods; the rise of the cultural and technical level of the workers, and of their skill; improved housing conditions of the working people. The individual money wage of manual and clerical workers is supplemented by large assignments from the State and from public organisations for social and cultural measures. These are an important means of raising real wages.

SOCIALIST ECONOMIC LAW OF PLANNED, PROPORTIONAL DEVELOPMENT
https://www.marxists.org/subject/economy/authors/pe/pe-ch30.htm
(1) Planned development of the national economy is made necessary and possible by social, socialist ownership of the means of production. Planned, proportional development of the economy is an economic law of socialism.

(2) The law of planned, proportional development of the economy is a regulator of the distribution of means of production and manpower in socialist economy, in accordance with the basic economic law of socialism. It requires the planned management of the national economy, the development of all branches of sodalist economy on a proportional basis, the fullest and most effective use of material, labour and financial resources.

(3) Socialist planning is successful if it correctly meets the requirements of the law of planned development of the national economy, and conforms fully to the requirements of the basic economic law of socialism. In the actual planned management of the economy, economic instruments connected with the operation of the law of value are utilised. The balance method of planning is of great importance in fixing correct proportions for national economic development.

(4) Planned management of the national economy is a most important aspect of the Socialist State's function as economic organiser. National economic plans are worked out by State bodies on the basis of directives determined by the Communist Party, and are based on scientific generalisation from the experience of socialist construction, on taking into account the advantages afforded by a sodalist economic system, and on the external and internal situation. State plans are geared to everything advanced which arises in the practice of communist construction, in the creative work of the masses, and are directive in character. To carry on the national economy in a planned way, the mass of the people must be rallied to fulfil and exceed the plan targets, and daily checking of the fulfilment of the plan must be organised.

(5) A very great advantage of socialism over capitalism is planned development of the national economy, without crises. This brings about a saving in resources which the bourgeois system cannot achieve, and makes it fully possible for all sides of production to grow continuously and rapidly in the interests of the mass of the people.

Relations remain or they don't. You can't "dilute" private property by having it being owned by party members. That just makes the intellegencia outright capitalists since they own capital. The relations remain concrete all the same. Be fucking serious.
>It’s hybrid, of course, but it can never be compared to the capitalist structures in the West.
If it's not socialist, it's capitalist. This is a simple truth. They not only can be directly compared to the western imperial powers but in essence of the current system of production, they remain capitalist. There is no hybrid of socialism and capitalism. Proudhonist
>DotP went swinging and has capitalists in its bed
So it's not a dictatorship of the proletariat, it's a dictatorship of the national bourgeoisie and the proletariat. Why do you call it a Dotp? Do you even know what it means beyond your memes about private property being theft?

The trend is still true. I just shared the wrong image. The proletariat (bottom 50 percent) have about as much income as the top one percent in Communist China pre-tax, but post-tax this figure changes greatly. Communist China uses law of socialist value distribution to steal back the surplus value from the capitalists with Socialist taxation. 🙏 please. I only made small error. It was just the wrong image.

Except the Soviet Union had its NEP phase and continued to retain black markets until the point of its dissolution. And the Chinese flag has stars for petit bourgeoisie and national bourgeoisie; it’s been hybrid since its birth.

China is socialist to a greater degree than any other economy besides the planned economies of Cuba and North Korea.

Marx wrote, anyways, that socialism would naturally develop out of capitalism as capitalism resolved its contradictions. Until a full replacement can be found for the national and petit bourgeoisie, these two classes will remain, albeit subordinate to the dictatorship of the proletariat.

Youtube is for children. I read and re-read the Marxist classics. I cite from the official USSR textbook regarding this matter, which was written by Stalin's greatest theorists and then approved by Stalin himself. The textbook agglomerates the theories of the greats you mention and condenses them for neonate Marxists. I teach while you conceal and confuse.
