The Economist sums it all up for you: Copyright’s in hell right now, it’s only going to get worse, so why not roll back to the original 14-year span and focus on protecting the hell out of the stuff that falls into that basket? It’s a positively Solomonic impulse, and quite possibly the only sane thing I’ll read this week. (I’d go even farther in fact: Considering how much the average lifespan has increased since the original term was set, I say we could decree a 28-year span with no harm done to any party. Who’s with me?!)
