LEFT AND RIGHT COMING TOGETHER….Just to show that I don’t always disagree with the Cornerites, I think Mark Krikorian gets this exactly right:

The Wall Street Journal today describes how the firms owning trademarks for Dora the Explorer and other characters popular with children are working night and day to prevent kids from having the characters at their birthday parties. This is one more indication, along with music companies suing their customers, of how absurd intellectual property law has become….It’s not my bailiwick, so I don’t know how the law should be changed, but for starters “limited Times” should become limited again, and not 120 years, so that work enters the public domain a lot sooner.

I vote for 50 years or during the lifetime of the creator, whichever is longer.
