Today the Captain Copyright website has announced that Captain Copyright has been permanently shelved.
They have come to the realization that copyright issues are divisive and therefore "the current climate around copyright issues will not allow a project like this one to be successful."

There is absolutely nothing in there about artists (they seem to consider collectives a reasonable substitute) or users which unfortunately shows that they still just don't get it.
