Personally, I would support a voluntary annual dues fee. (Information access tax?) if this is the only means to assure preservation and access (by all) to our files.
I hate the way the entire information storage business process has sneaked into our lives from IBM early on, to Microsoft, Google and the likes holding us hostage to increasing rental fees for storage as well as use of programs. No longer do we pay for something and then “own” it.
I still “own” my library of old books, magazines, records and CDs, but fear someday I will no longer be able to afford storing them or be able to access them without some information access tax. Oh well, just a grumpy old man, in retirement years. Younger generation seems to not care. “It’s on the cloud” and they assume whatever they want will always be there. (I wonder if someone will come up with a book or guitar license and tax?)
For now, pay the duty to the Klingons for our protection until the Borg arrive and assimilate everything.
