Subject: RE: BS: 'Should auld copyrights be forgot ?'
Gosh, T, after all this I finally learn that you are for longer copyright terms than even I have suggested, so we agree after all. I have learned a lot from you in this discussion, and I appreciate it. A "tax on readers for the benefit of writers" is something I could support, under the generous limitations we're talking here. If anyone wants to join in a cause to benefit the artists more than the various middlemen (publishers, galleries, etc) I'll be with you all the way. From what I've heard about Ireland, and I believe France, they seem to have priorities straight, in my way of thinking.
