I think it is harder to make this case if we don't speak of the authors right 
to get paid but rather his ability to get paid. (it is just too easy to let

In any case, it is easy to envision that unlimited non-commercial copying 
could reduce the money the author collects. It is also possible to envision 
that it will result in him collecting more money.
