"I have a dream" speech is copyrighted. How do Sanders supporters feel about it?

Should King have sued companies who were violating his copyright?

Just curious because you seem to think that public interest trump copyright law and protection of intellectual property.

4. I'm not the one

 

ignoring decades of copyright law and case precedent.

And believing the whole media world has constructed a grand conspiracy to keep Sanders down.

6. Well 'hill' this here Sanders supporter makes a good deal of his income via reuse and royalty fees

 

for copyright protected works.
Dr King, you will find, did not copyright that or any other of his speeches. His estate sued to enforce copyrights on that speech and their right to do so upheld by the court in 1999, long after Dr King's murder.
A copyright protection is not entirely about collecting of reuse fees it is also and in many cases largely about protecting the work from exploitation or use that would diminish the image of the work and future status of the work or the maker of that work.

7. You have no idea what the issue is with

 

copyrights in the TPP.

However your attempt to frame this as a racial problem is stunningly awful. Please consider a self delete. It would be the honorable thing to do.
