Thread Name: New Copyright Philosophy - Maybe
Subject: RE: New Copyright Philosophy - Maybe
Thank you. It's an important issue, especially since the whole thing was presumably decided when vcr's became commonplace.

It's worth noting that, even though the creators of music, etc deserve a profit, few actually own the rights. And of those who still do, do their great grand-children deserve an income from them?

Note. As of a few years ago, "Happy Birthday to You" was still under copyright.
