my copyright reform wish list (US-based):

[ ] copyright lasts 5 years automatically, can be renewed for 5 more years after that, then it's public domain
[ ] illegal to demand a creator transfer ALL copyrights in order to receive payment/awards/work contracts
[ ] if the creator dies less than 10 years after the work is copyrighted, their descendants cannot claim the copyright unless a transfer is stipulated in a will or other contract. otherwise public domain
