"The laws that have passed in recent years have imbalanced the historical balance between owners of copyrighted works and users of copyrighted works. The balance has been tilted dramatically in favor of owners at the expense of users."

IT’S KEVIN KELLY (WIRED EDITOR) V. JACK VALENTI (MPAA)
The latest entertainment cartel abuse is extending copyrights. Some of their arguments are laughable. According to Valenti, the entertainment needs longer copyrights to convert old materials. "Who is going to digitize these public domain movies?"

It’s the very thing you’re fighting. Says Kelly, "I have an answer: movie buffs. Not only have fans moved almost all of music into the digital era, they have been busy moving hundreds of millions of documents onto the Web and are producing millions of pages of daily reporting and news in Weblogs. And without the help of paralyzed publishers, avid readers have already converted nearly 20,000 books in the public domain."
