we are certainly living in an interesting period of time. institutions and ideas are overturned faster than ever. this article on the end of copyright nicely describes what will likely be the future for copyright .

among the choice quotes from the article:

” travesties like the Digital Millennium Copyright Act don’t promote the progress of science; they actively discourage it. So do software and biotechnology patents. The patent system was intended to allow inventors to profit for a limited time on particular inventions, not to allow huge technology companies to put a stranglehold on innovation by patenting every tiny advance they make.”
