The issue is them being a gatekeeper, a warden, a centralized force coming between me and the artist. A middleman. The net doesn’t need middlemen. It doesn’t need the overhead, whether financially or logistically. It doesn’t need the inefficiency, whether financially or logistically. There’s nothing to be gained by allowing entities, whether personal, corporate, or governmental, to “intermediate” our transactions online unless they are performing some service that is useful to both parties, e.g. escrow or brokerage.
