    Supreme Court to decide copyright laws

    Check this out. Being that this is the Internet age, and the Internet is only as good as the information available to publish, do the groups fighting the copyright extensions have a point?

    Find the story here: http://apnews1.iwon.com/article/20020219/D7HP7GIG0.html

    I think they have a point; if the works are never released from copyright then they may be lost to obscurity forever.
    Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.
    - Samuel Johnson

    There should be limits on what companies and groups can lock away from the public.

    Did you catch that name -
    Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act

    Wow. That goes way back.
