Patently Good Idea

“The Supreme Court recently ruled that congress’ extending copyright protection for yet another 20 years does not violate the Constitution. The extension was pushed primarily by Disney, which didn’t want any of its old Mickey Mouse cartoons entering the public domain. Now artistic works are protected for the lifetime of the creator plus 70 years; for companies, 95 years. Maybe Congress should just be done with it and declare that a copyright is forever. Disney, of course, hasn’t hesitated to help itself to characters or works in the public domain, such as Pinocchio, Cinderella and The Hunchback of Notre-Dame.” – from Steve Forbes’ editorial in Forbes Magazine
