Heard from someone who had friends in Belarus (The last communist dictatorship on earth). Software is booming in Belarus: No protection of intellectual property. Lot's of censorship, but no intellectual property. (As long as you don't talk politics, you're fine)
My business doesn't grow by copyrights or patents. My business has to pay for them because my business needs machines, drugs, software. But I'm only feeding people, so I don't need protection.
Entertainment: that's worth protecting, food isn't important anymore.
