Simply stupid on copyright

Mick HucknallThat well-known copyright thinker Mick Hucknall (lead singer of pop has-beens Simply Red) has a rather confused rant in today's Guardian about copyright:

Copyright is fundamentally socialist - it is radical and redistributive, subversive even. How else would you describe a form of property that anyone can create out of nothing? Copyright's democratising effect is seen most clearly in the music business.
