Re: "when actually allowed to say anything at all by the mods"
As the law has not been written, you do not know what it actually contains.
And as we know from history laws that do not make it 100% clear have been used to prosecute people that apparently the law maker did not mean to include!.
And back to your mickey mouse comment, it should be in the public domain it has been artificially removed due to corporate bribing (lobbying? call it what you want it is corruption of democracy) of politicians at the expense of the public.
Copyright time limits are ridiculous and not really been done for the benefit of individuals it has been done for corporate shills .
