Repeal Copyright?

Ed Quillen/Denver Post suggests it might be Time to give up on copyright law? (htm). He explores things on the opposite end of the way the RIAA sees things, and while they are each at two extremes, as a copyright holder, he takes an interesting perspective.

So there's hope that American copyright law will allow creators to control how their work is distributed. But any law that can be twisted the SCO way, enforced the RIAA way, extended the Disney way, or abused the Ziff-Davis way is a law that ought to be repealed. All it does is enrich lawyers and big companies, and they'd probably get along just fine without it.

Thanks to Frank for the pointer.
