Intellectual property idea 

I've been thinking about ways to improve intellectual property for a while, and I think I've got an idea. Limit exclusivity to a short period, say 5 years for copyrights and 2 for patents, but have low fixed-rate royalties for profits above a certain minimum off derivative works, and higher rates for straight-up copies. Let that go for another, say, 25 years for copyrights and 8 for patents.

Obviously the numbers need work, but what other problems are there with this?
