What Would Copyright Look Like If Created Today?

Copyright was first created back in 1709 by the Statute of Anne, so it makes sense that anyone alive today takes the existence of it for granted. However, the technological landscape has changed greatly in the 300 years since copyright was created, and as a result, some laws and rules concerning copyright are starting to feel a bit draconian. So, what if we were able to craft copyright laws today, without the existing baggage of 300 year-old laws? What would they look like? How would we encourage creation of new content in this world?
