The system may be flawed, but few would abolish it. Frank Moorhouse, recipient of many past grants, argues writers should be well paid, not for unwritten books but when their work is borrowed, copied or quoted. As books go out of copyright 50 years after their authors' death, it would be useful to keep paying a 'social royalty' into a fund, he suggests. Then dead writers could support the living. The catch is that someone would still have to decide who gets the money.
