    It's going to be harder for anyone to make a living as a writer, and then everybody will lose.
    I wouldn't be surprised to hear someone chime in that it will actually make things better, that instead of writing for mega-corporate publishing houses, writers will instead become wandering story-tellers, regaling eager audiences with their spellbinding tales in exchange for a bowl of soup or a couch to sleep on.  It will make the art much more pure and true.

    I've actually heard people make a similar argument regarding the eventual collapse of the music recording business.
