Stifling copyright

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

I'm not sure if anyone will really understand the ramifications of overly aggressive copyright. Methinks, 20yrs is far too long to prevent works from going into the public domain. In most cases, books older than 20yrs are so obscure, it would to the author good to have them digitized and indexed by Google's powerful Linux servers. Hell, it will boost the sales of some of these supposed lost titles, as most people are more likely to read the printed text. E-books really haven't captured the imagination of the masses yet.
