>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.

Although I actually agree with you, we have a problem; if we decide that we can ignore the period of copyright we don't approve of, why should any period be sacrosanct? It's the law. If you don't like the law, criticise the lawmakers, don't cheat on the bits of the law you don't like.
