Funny line.

I spent far too much time this week reading blog posts by people arguing about the proposed copyright law, bill C-61 - I had no idea there were so many people who believe that public domain should begin the minute you finish writing your book (they basically don't believe in what they call 'monopoly copyright'). They call it Appropriation Art and are supported by a bunch of University of Ottawa profs.



I guess this made me think of it because I'm not sure if they're trying to distribute things more evenly or not.


(I don't want to upset that guy who worries blog comments are all self-serving :)
