Here is a sight devoted to opposing copyright extension.

Opposing Copyright Extension

Lawrence Lessig's Weblog is now reporting that the Supreme Court has upheld the Copyright Term Extension Act.

This decision will live in infamy along with Dred Scott, Plessy v. Furgeson, and Lochner.

Sad days for our people and our Constitution. When we're not 'picking wars' we're defending Warner Brothers and Disney from competition. What a disgusting excuse for a Congress and a Court we have.

Perhaps a more analogous infamous case would be Korematsu v. United States, since that case was another in which the Supreme Court rubber-stamped the actions of other branches of government.

This is a cloudy issue. People live longer now. As a composer I want to see the benefits of my work help my heirs as well as the public. Consider:
"These are the Clouds
William Butler Yeats
                                                
These are the clouds about the fallen sun,
The majesty that shuts his burning eye:
The weak lay hand on what the strong has done,
Till that be tumbled that was lifted high
And discord follow upon unison,
And all things at one common level lie.
And therefore, friend, if your great race were run
And these things came, so much the more thereby
Have you made greatness your companion,
Although it be for children that you sigh:
These are the clouds about the fallen sun,
The majesty that shuts his burning eye."

By quoting these words and giving due credit am I protected or am I violating copyright?

Doug Saum

"These Are the Clouds," published with other works in 1916.

Doug, I think you are free of problems, but I am not a copyright lawyer.

Looks like the copyright would have been up in 1989. He died in 1939 + 50 years = 1939, but I am also not a lawyer.

Date plus 95 years = 2011. Happy New Year!

(the pre-1978 statement from wikilaw in the other thread. Dunno if it is right or not).

That`s part of the problem with copyright. The world has changed and the internet has helped with that change. Copyright law is NOT standard across the world. That is problem number one, imo. Second is that unless a writer or composer is hooked up with a fairly major publisher or publishing house, the likelihood of a song writer being able to successfully pursue and win a legal case is somewhere between slim and none.

Why should copyright extend beyond the lifetime of the creator of the copyright work? It seems unreasonable to me.
