« Judge Posner: Misuse Remedies for Copyright's Chill |
| Patenting Punctuation »
August 25, 2004
In a conversation on the Cyberia-L email list, CIS Fellow Chris Sprigman argues that Judge Posner's suggested "fix" for the copyright term extension problem is flawed because it may not pass muster under the Berne Convention, and, by extension, the TRIPS accord. So in a forthcoming issue of the Stanford Law Review, Sprigman will propose his own solution: restoring to copyright law the sort of formalities that copyright holders like Ludlow Music, Inc. have occasionally messed up.
An advance copy of Sprigman's piece is available [PDF] @ the CIS weblog. I haven't read it yet, but something tells me Joe Gratz has. Perhaps he'd be kind enough to offer us an executive summary?
