Copyright Unbalanced

Restoring The Balance Between Protection And InnovationThe Constitution Gives Congress The Power To Establish Copyright To Promote The Progress Of Science And Useful Arts This Requires Congress To Engage In A Delicate Balancing Act, Giving Authors Enough Protection That They Will Be Motivated To Create Expressive Works, But Not So Much That It Hampers Innovation And Public Access To Information Yet Over The Past Half Century Congress Has Routinely Shifted The Balance In Only One Direction Away From Access And Freedom And Toward Greater Privileges For Organized Special Interests.Conservatives And Libertarians, Who Are Naturally Suspicious Of Big Government, Should Be Skeptical Of An Ever Expanding Copyright System They Should Also Be Skeptical Of The Recent Trend Toward Criminal Prosecution Of Even Minor Copyright Infringements, Of The Growing Use Of Civil Asset Forfeiture In Copyright Enforcement, And Of Attempts To Regulate The Internet And Electronics In The Name Of Piracy Eradication.Copyright Unbalanced Is Not A Moral Case For Or Against Copyright It Is A Pragmatic Look At The Excesses Of The Present Copyright Regime And Of Proposals To Expand It Further It Is A Call For Reform To Roll Back The Expansions And Reinstate The Limits That The Constitution S Framers Placed On Copyright.Copyright Unbalanced

    Picked this up on a free table at a conference, largely because I ve always been curious how libertarians reconcile being so strongly pro property rights but far divided on intellectual property I was pleased to see that covered in the first few pages, but not too convincingly certainly physical property law has a stronger common law background but it s not like governments invented copyright from whole cloth, and if it s the particular system that s flawed you d expect division on where the line should be for physical property.None of the essays are mind blowing, but most are well done The book functions better as a laundry list of issues with the current system, and insofar as the goal is to convince that the current system is too strong I think they do that, although at least I didn t need much convincing.The strongest essay is by Eli Dourado, who successfully goes further than t...

    Very good book of essays on the problems surrounding contemporary implementations of copyright law in the U.S., and why libertarians and conservatives should be dubious of so called intellectual property I have been aware of the issues surrounding copyright for some time now, mostly through my work with Project Gutenberg which, incidentally, has afforded me the privilege of having my name appear near Eric Eldred s, of Eldred v Ashcroft fame, on a couple Hawthorne texts, though I ve never met Eric nor had any real world contact with him and I have largely been of the we nee...

    This collection provides not only a persuasive case on the need for copyright reform, but it makes that case for copyright true believers and skeptics alike Taking many such perspectives on their merit, this book make the case, again and again, that the current regime is not optimal from any perspective.Putting aside the central thesis of the work, it is also an essential guide to exactly what the current reality is It ...
