Copyright Term Reform/Eldred

< Copyright Term Reform

The Eldred act was proposed by Lawrence Lessig as a way of getting the majority of old works into public domain. It requires that a $1 every five years be paid for works that have been published 50 years or more ago.

This basically will allow the published works that no-one care enough about to be returned to the public domain, and works that some one does care enough about will have an uptodate contact information.
