Lessig Continues Eldred Copyright Fight

Lawrence Lessig has not laid down the gauntlet in his crusade to amend the term of copyright protections despite last week’s Supreme Court decision. See his Op-Ed, Protecting Mickey Mouse at Art’s Expense, in the January 18 New York Times, as well as his announcement about a new effort to tackle the issue on the legislative front via The Eric Eldred Act FAQ, “a proposal to help move work that has no continuing commercial value into the public domain.”
Also worth noting is After the copyright smackdown: What next?, an insightful commentary on the digital rights advocacy movement whose consumer supported agenda is gaining momentum, and some strong support in Congress.
