If Rupert was forced to 'publish or have his copyright perish' (as the
original law intended though I know not in those exact words or terms so
please don't jump on this) we would not have this problem of pc control of
culture but a free marketplace of ideas. With the public domain continually
receding so that the bulk of recorded media stays under wraps and with the
idea expression dichotomy rendered meaningless in our post Marshall Macluen
world we need to work for an aggressive first sale doctrine that allows us
to share and fair use that allows us to sample.
I don't see how you can take the position you have here on Chan at the same
time oppose my push back on copyright. In short, either you believe in
First Sale and Fair Use or you don't believe in Free Speech.
