Copyright Reform

I haven’t had a chance to listen to the audio yet, but I think we need some copyright reform.

It’s no longer a limited period of time when it extends beyond the lifespan of 100% of the population.

So…you can have your life of the author + 70 years (I think it should really *NEVER* exceed 70 years) but the copyright will be issued in 14-year increments which are not automatically renewed.
