Re: Want their cake and to eat it

Personally, I am seriously annoyed by the immoral and unnacceptable increase in the copyright period for existing material.

Copyright is an agreement between the artist and society, giving the artist a period of monopoly in which to earn what they can from their art. To retrospectively extend this monopoly is unjust to society, and should never have been permitted.

As a result, I personally have no respect for any copyright over 50 years, and much less than i otherwise would have for younger works.
