Rep. Zoe Lofgren wants to Release More Content into the Public Domain

Techdirt:A Politician Supporting The Public Domain? Larry Lessig has been a vigilent and active supporter of releasing orphaned works of art back into the public domain. The argument is that copyrights shouldn’t be automatically granted and that by even requiring a $1 maintenance fee that many non-commercially viable works could be released for use and reuse by everyone in the community. Seems to make sense to me as a good place to start.
