Response to: copyright > 28yrs is THEFT
I agree with you that this is a MAJOR issue, and that the change in copyright laws that changed copyrights from 28 years to life of author plus something pretty long was a major theft from the public...with no justification other than greed of publishers. Can we really imagine, for example, that Dr. Seuss in 1937 would not have published "To THink that I saw it on Mulberry Street" if he had thought that after 28 years it would enter the public domain? Or 56 years with renewal?
