These days, copyright is big topic all over the world. Authors believe that they should be paid for life for each and every work they create. While copyright law allows for a suitable time period for the author to recoup his/her investment in the work, this is being stretched to the limits these days and most believe it to be their right.
By this logic, it is like a government servant claiming life-long pension after serving for one year. After all, the person can claim that all that follows in the government office is due to his contribution in the one year which he served!!!
