GUEST,Okiemockbird 'The Ballad of Dennis Karjala' (14) RE: 'The Ballad of Dennis Karjala' 24 May 00


Here is a humorous picture of Richard Stallman as "Saint IGNUcius": http://www.stallman.org/saintignucius.jpg

Here is the Music Relief Association which seems to want to narrow the public performance right from a right of public performance to its older form, a right of public performance for profit. (As I understand the history, the "for profit" qualification was dropped in the 1978 revision of the copyright law.)

Narrowing the public performance right has advantages and disadvantages. I wouldn't want to broaden it, but regardless of whether we narrow it or not, I think we need a thorough reforem of the music licensing system and (I never tire of stressing this) a shorter copyright term.
