Stop the Copyright Creep: New Restrictions are Not the Answer to the Challenges of Digital Publishing
Publishers are seeking to expand the copyright restrictions they can impose on news platforms, in the latest example of a phenomenon known as “copyright creep.” That kind of creep happens when lawmakers lose sight of the central purpose of copyright: to ultimately grow the cultural commons by ensuring that authors and their heirs can collect compensation for specific uses of their works.
It was only a matter of time before patent trolls directly hurt the users with their greed. If I taped a tennis ball to an arrow would I be breaking your immoral copyright law too!?
