  1. Very interesting article; thanks for the link.

    U.S. copyright law, in its current incarnation, appears nearly unworkable, not to mention that it does not seem to be fulfilling its constitutional intent: “To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries.”

    Limited times? Yes, it will be a great day for Authors and Inventers when, in the year 2090, Windows 95 passes into the public domain.
