Anderton Posted November 10, 2002 Share Posted November 10, 2002 So how do you all feel about copyright extension? The time something can be copyrighted seems to get longer and longer. Now it can extend beyond the creator's death. It used to be that it was assumed copyrighted material would be the exclusive province of the creator for a limited period of time, then pass into the public domain. Had the origial copyright laws continued unchanged, for example, Mickey Mouse would now be in the public domain. So my question is what is a reasonable amount of time for an artist to maintain exclusive control over their work, and reap the benefits therefrom? Should the length of copyright protection be extended or shortened?
