Free Horton!

Great piece by Duke’s Center for the Study of the Public Domain about all the great works that we, the public, would now have free access to if Congress hadn’t extended copyright protections in 1976.  While there are certainly some good reasons for copyright protection, I think the article gives a great illustration of how ‘life plus 70 years’ may be a little extreme, and what the public domain is missing out on, and will continue to miss out on until 2050.
