We (Prelinger Archives) have collaborated with the Internet Archive
and Project Gutenberg on an amicus brief for Eldred v. Ashcroft, the
challenge to the Sonny Bono Copyright Extension Act due to be argued
before the Supreme Court in the autumn. Basically we argue that a
strong and constantly self-renewing public domain is critical, now
that digital archives exist and make it feasible to deliver creative
works to a broad public at low cost.
