Dead poets society: copyright term and public domain

The dead poets society: The copyright term and the public domain
by Matthew Rimmer

In a victory for corporate control of cultural heritage, the Supreme
Court of the United States has rejected a constitutional challenge
to the Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act 1998 (U.S.) by a
majority of seven to two. This paper evaluates the litigation in terms
of policy debate in a number of discourses -- history, intellectual
property law, constitutional law and freedom of speech, cultural
heritage, economics and competition policy, and international trade.
It argues that the extension of the copyright term will inhibit the
dissemination of cultural works through the use of new technologies
-- such as Eric Eldred's Eldritch Press and Project Gutenberg. It
concludes that there is a need to resist the attempts of copyright
owners to establish the Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension
Act 1998 (U.S.) as an international model for other jurisdictions
-- such as Australia.
