Copyright Gone Mad

Copyright Gone Mad

by Stephan Kinsella

But Lebrecht missteps when he concludes, "That is what judges are there to stop. Whoever ends up owning what, the law must make common sense and must ensure that the protection of copyright does not block the public footpath to cultural enlightenment." This is wrong. Judges are there to do justice, where possible; this is how the common law developed; but they have a dual mission: they also have to construe statutes, legislatormade "law." Given the bizarre, contradictory, ambiguous, and unjust principles that infuse modern copyright statutes, the judges cannot be blamed for their decisions. The very logic of intellectual property entails absurd results.
