Copyright lasts 110-130 years, and movies have been around 118 years. Hmm.... They will fight to keep their movies under copyright forever.
My only question is how can they possibly manage such huge film libraries, and why aren't ALL their movies available to the public? Thanks to the internet, every movie ever made can be made available to the public in one way or another.
If they're going to be the stewards of culture, they need to at the very least release the material or lose the privilege.
"Hey Google, here's a list of website we want you provide links to. If we come up with more site in the future we'll let you know. In the meantime, send all traffic to our approved sites. We're in control of everything now."
Not only would this instantly kill Google, it would kill the internet.
