GUEST,Okiemockbird The Purpose of Copyright (76* d) RE: 'The Purpose of Copyright' 13 Feb 00


That someone "fought hard" for something doesn't make right what they fought for. The Waffen SS "fought hard" to conquer Europe for Hitler.

Copyright law is not an end in itself. The scope and duration of copyright must be appropriate to the ultimate goal of copyright, which is to enlarge the public domain. The scope and duration of copyright under our present laws are excessive and counter-productive in light of these ends.
