Re: "It's surely no accident that this novel relaxed attitude to sharing materials covered by copyright concerns academic papers."
Current copyright covers all creation equally - and doesn't vary based on intent or medium or commercial value or educational value.
The only "empty entertainments" that cost millions to make are films. Music, books, photographs, poetry, etc. are ridiculously cheap to make in comparison and still get the exact same protections. It's commercial film and film alone that has skewed copyright beyond reason.
So if you really believe one thing is fine and another thing is not, then we really just need a special copyright for movies.
In fact, considering the cost of academic research, most of those research papers probably cost more to make than most albums and books.
And if you actually believe that "empty entertainment" retard progress, then you have no respect for art or artists - or you just watch a lot of bad movies.

Except if you remove the offending text from the website that published it, you also remove them from Google, so Google is not actually publishing anything. It is merely showing you what is written on the website.

Hmm... I wonder if there's a good way to get people to show up for my concert tour? I know, how about recording some of my songs and giving them away for free so that they can become fans? Nah, that would be a waste of time. I'm sure they'll just show up because of my cool band name.
Registering copyright should be as easy as registering and maintaining a domain name. It's easy and cheap to do but if you don't take responsibility for it you lose it. And it works globally - you don't have to register your domain in every single country. One registration works world wide.
