Three Myths about Copyright Law and Where to Start to Fix it

This paper, written by a subgroup within Congress, gives me hope that there may yet still be real copyright reform in the US. Current US Copyright Law overreaches on behalf of a select few and in turn obfuscates and hinders the advancement of all people everywhere. Our economic development, scientific progress, and artistic growth depend upon a growing mass of public domain works on which to build a draw inspiration. Fair Use laws are arbitrary and shrinking in applicability. Copyright terms are growing. This has to stop. It simply must if we are to progress as a nation, as a people, as a species.
