Death to the Public Domain!

From Groklaw... Ever get the feeling that major companies want the Public Domain to disappear? The Public Domain exists only to steal profits from mega-corporations, it has no real purpose. This is why it's gratifying to know that the state of New York has decided that when copyright expires, common law can be applied to assert the rights of the original owner. This means that no music can ever enter the public domain, assuring limited supply and greater profits for all "original owners" involved.

Satire is dead. I'll go cry now...
