31756821 story Paramount Claims Louis CK "Didn't Monetize" 288 Posted by Unknown Lamer on Monday April 16, 2012 @11:50AM from the louis-ck-living-in-poverty-by-industry-standards dept. Weezul writes "Paramount's 'Worldwide VP of Content Protection and Outreach' Al Perry has insinuated that Louis CK making $1 million in 12 days means he isn't monetizing. Al Perry asserted that 'copyright law gives creators the right to monetize their creations, and that even if people like Louis C.K. decide not to do so, that's a choice and not a requirement.' Bonus, Slashdot favorite Jonathan Coulton apparently grossed almost half a million last year."
