Copyright Term Extensions are Looming!

In our September 2014 newsletter, we wrote about the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). This is an international initiative, being negotiated in secret, which will have far-reaching impacts in many areas of trade, copyright, and more.

We urge all fans of Project Gutenberg to learn about this initiative, and speak with lawmakers and others about your concerns. Spread the word to your friends and family, who might not be aware of the downward pressure on wages and job security that the TPP would bring about.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has an article describing the disastrous effects of copyright term extensions, which will be extended under the TPP to match or exceed copyright terms in the United States.

Readers in countries with Project Gutenberg affiliates will be particularly interested in this article. Australia, Canada, Great Britain, some nations in Europe, and elsewhere would extend copyright terms if the TPP were to be enacted. This would largely halt growth of the public domain, as happened in the United States in 1998.

* Copyright Term Extensions are Looming!

In our September 2014 newsletter, we wrote about the Trans-Pacific
Partnership (TPP).  This is an international initiative, being
negotiated in secret, which will have far-reaching impacts in many
areas of trade, copyright, and more.

We urge all fans of Project Gutenberg to learn about this initiative,
and speak with lawmakers and others about your concerns.  Spread the
word to your friends and family, who might not be aware of the
downward pressure on wages and job security that the TPP would bring
about.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has an article descibing the
disasterous effects of copyright term extensions, which will be
extended under the TPP to match or exceed copyright terms in the
United States.

Readers in countries with Project Gutenberg affiliates will be
particularly interested in this article.  Australia, Canada, Great
Britain, some nations in Europe, and elsewhere would extend copyright
terms if the TPP were to be enacted.  This would largely halt growth
of the public domain, as happened in the United States in 1998.

Forty-two years ago, in 1971, Michael Hart typed the US Declaration of
Independence into a computer file at the University of Illinois.  On
July 4, we commemorate that event.  We also honor the memory of
Michael, who died in 2011.

An excellent history of Project Gutenberg was written by Marie Lebert,
and is available as eBook #27045:

* Copyright news from Canada

Via Project Gutenberg of Canada's Mark Akrigg, this is a follow-up to
a previous article on the topic.


WHAT AMERICANS (AND OTHERS) CAN DO TO FIGHT THE TRANS-PACIFIC
PARTNERSHIP

In May's newsletter, Greg Newby was kind enough to post an item I had
written on the dangers posed by the Trans-Pacific Partnership "free
trade" negotiations:

http://lists.pglaf.org/pipermail/gmonthly/2013/000095.html

The TPP would force copyright extensions in Canada and New Zealand.
But it is an attack on Americans as well. For example, it would make
it impossible to roll back the 20-year copyright extensions passed by
the U.S. Congress in 1998 under shocking circumstances.

By the time you read this, yet another round of closed negotiation
will have taken place in Lima, Peru from May 15-24th.  It's unlikely
that you will see any report of this in the media.  So the secret
attack on your rights will continue -- unless you take quick and easy
action to tell your government that they are there to serve the
public, not private interests!


HOW TO TAKE ACTION IN NO TIME AT ALL

The TPP is an attack on the rights of Americans, and Americans are in
the best position to stop the attack.  In no time at all you can send
a message to Congress.  Go to the following Electronic Frontier
Foundation page to learn more about how the TPP harms America, and
click on the red TAKE ACTION button to send a message to Congress:

https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2013/04/tpp-biggest-global-threat-internet-acta

If you live outside the United States, sign the Stop the Trap petition
-- Americans can also sign it!

http://stopthetrap.net/

HOW TO TAKE EVEN MORE EFFECTIVE ACTION IN VERY LITTLE TIME

The petitions are excellent, but do not focus on copyright terms,
which are of special interest to supporters of Project Gutenberg.  But
it's easy to do just a little bit more: this "little bit" can actually
be enormously effective.  Remember how the one-day Wikipedia blackout
and individual phone calls and emails completely stopped a government
attack on the rights of internet users.  Individual actions count.

In the United States, simply write and/or call your Member of Congress
and Senator telling them that for the United States to use the TPP to
extend copyright durations is an attack on the rights of the citizens
of other countries, and in complete conflict with the principles of
equity and respect for others upon which the United States was
founded.  And tell them that Congress's 1998 20-year copyright
extension was an illegitimate confiscation of the public domain, and
should be repealed immediately, rather than exported to other
countries.

In Canada and New Zealand, contact your Member of Parliament to say
that they must not allow copyright extensions to be forced on your
country by a secret international treaty.  In other TPP countries
(such as Australia and Mexico), tell your elected representatives that
copyright terms should be as short as possible, and should never be
dictated by foreign governments and corporations.

This is a battle that we can win!

* Copyright Threat in Canada

Via Mark Akrigg, of www.gutenberg.ca:

The long debate over the Copyright Act revisions in Canada is over, and the 
changes are now in force.  Some of the changes are good, others are not.  
But from my perspective the main thing is that Life+50 has been preserved.  
And it has become very clear that the Canadian public is extremely aware of 
copyright issues, and that, in the absence of outside factors, Life+50 will 
endure.

But there *are* outside factors.  Talks are underway for the Trans Pacific 
Partnership, a "trade agreement" involving a dozen or so countries, including 
Canada, Mexico, and the U.S.  It includes an unsavoury set of proposals, 
including copyright extensions to Life+70.

If these extensions went through, 20 years of the pubic domain would disappear 
in Canada and New Zealand, and it would become that much harder for Congress 
to roll back the unfortunate 1998 copyright extensions, because of 
"international obligations".

It is difficult to exaggerate the danger posed by these secret negotiations.
Senator Wyden of Oregon has stated that "the majority of Congress is being 
kept in the dark as to the substance of the TPP negotiations, while 
representatives of U.S. corporations ??? like Halliburton, Chevron, PHRMA, 
Comcast, and the Motion Picture Association of America ??? are being 
consulted and made privy to details of the agreement":

http://www.wyden.senate.gov/news/blog/post/iycmi-wyden-statement-introducing-congressional-oversight-over-trade-negotiations-act

There is awareness in Canada of the risks posed by the TPP.  I personally 
became very active very early, and did everything I could to alert the 
Canadian public to what was going on.  I was surprised and gratified by the 
strong positive reaction that I received.

In New Zealand, there is widespread opposition to the TPP's attack on the 
public domain:

http://blog.greens.org.nz/2012/01/24/trans-pacific-partnership-to-impact-kiwi-books/

(The author of this blog item is a Member of Parliament in New Zealand)

But the attack on the public domain originated in the United States, and 
strong public opposition within the U.S. would be the most effective way of 
stopping this attack.

The American Library Association and the Electronic Frontier Foundation have 
already spoken publicly about the TPP, but my sense is that the American 
public is not aware of what is going on.

I'd be very happy to learn that PG US and its friends are actively working to 
stop the TPP.

P.S. As part of my activity, in August 2012 I made a formal submission to the 
U.S. government explaining why the TPP is harmful to the citizens of the 
United States as well as of other countries:

www.gutenberg.ca/documents/tpp-bad-deal-mark-akrigg-120827.html

It was not a time to mince words, and my language was direct.  I explained 
why the Trans Pacific Partnership is particularly harmful to Americans, and 
how it attacks the American Constitution and the principles of American 
democracy.  I also gave the background to the American copyright extensions 
of recent years.

The Sanction of the Victim

Consider this question:

Would any of our modern publishers be able to compete with a mind and heart such as that of Johannes Gutenberg?

Yet they, and their predecessors, The Stationers, managed to take over the entire world of The Gutenberg Press with the first of an era of legal manipulation we call “Intellectual Property.”

This takeover reduced the number of books in print to 10% of what they had been the day before the first copyright law took place — and returned the control of all publishing to The Stationers, who had had it for all previous history before Gutenberg.

The current ripoff royalty structure of 5% was imposed, meaning a single dollar out of every $20 you pay over the country goes from you to the author, and all the rest goes to publishing emperors — and their various hired personnel that stand between you and that author you love so much, each taking what they consider to be the fair share to which they are entitled…only that share is made possible only by the world of monopoly….

Think about this when you hear about the world in which monopoly, copyright, and other powers are used to enable one person, or some business they control, to own entire libraries of books, music or movies that would have long since expired under the copyright law they were created and contracted under.

These people, such as Ted Turner and Co., have made more millions from these titles than did those who originally created them

Why?

Because the copyright laws have been manipulated so that an owner of any copyright [until very recently] was under the impression a copyright could not last and thus was willing to take payments of drastically less than their work was worth due to the stroke pens made when enacting new copyright laws that voided the old ones!!!

Canadians: Speak Out on Copyright

BIG NEWS! January’s a great time to send an email to Ottawa A unique opportunity for Canadians to defend their Public Domain (the deadline is January 31, 2011).

The Opportunity

Bill C-32, the bill to amend the Copyright Act, is now being examined by a parliamentary committee in Ottawa.

The committee has taken the unprecedented step of inviting the Canadian public to email their submissions directly to the committee, the deadline being the end of January. You will find information and instructions here and here.

This is an opportunity not to be missed.

From the point of view of public domain advocates, Bill C-32 has its merits. In particular, it did not follow the horrible example of the European Union and the United States by imposing a massive general extension of the length of copyrights. For this our parliamentarians deserve our heartfelt thanks.

But the bill is far from ideal. It includes extensions to copyright length for many audio recordings and photographs. Also, it does absolutely nothing to enhance our public domain.
Continue reading Canadians: Speak Out on Copyright

January 1, 2011 will be Public Domain Day

Every new year since the first copyrights expired, back around 1724, the world has looked forward to the expiration of copyrights and the availability of public domain works, which have been kept under publishing monopolies.

This coming January 1, Europeans will see a nice list of great works entering the public domain as their copyright terms expire. Yet in the United States, where a landmark Supreme Court Case decided that an extended copyright term could literally last forever, a person can no longer look forward to such happenings.

Some exampes of expiring copyright in Europe this coming year:

  • Freud
  • Havelock Ellis
  • Zane Grey
  • William Butler Yeats
  • etc.

These works can now have new life breathed into them via any number of new unauthorized editions that publishers and private citizens are able create, including new articles, books, TV shows, videos, movies and all other forms of media.

Next year, many people will ask why the sudden resurgent interest in Freud, Ellis, Grey, Yeats, etc., and answers will rarely include the fact that these authors weren’t previously available due to copyright.

Copyright Revisions in Canada: Half a Loaf is Better Than None

Life+50 Duration Retained

The basic Life+50 copyright term is safe in Canada, at least for now.

There has been considerable pressure from foreign governments for Canada to extend its copyright term, but the Copyright Act revisions unveiled in June left the basic term of copyright unchanged. For this, the government deserves our thanks and congratulations. They have upheld the public interest.

Copyright Extensions for Some Photographs and Audio Recordings

However, harmful copyright extensions for some photographs and audio recordings are proposed in the new Bill C-32, making an unwelcome return. These provisions had been part of Bill C-61, a copyright bill introduced before the last election, but never passed. Now these provisions are back. For an explanation of these changes, and why they are harmful, see the Project Gutenberg Canada submission to last summer’s government-sponsored Copyright Consultations:

http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/008.nsf/eng/01390.html

Nothing Done to Protect the Public Domain

My submission to the government dealt largely with the issue of works where the life dates of the authors are not known. Such situations are very common, but the Copyright Act makes no provision for them. The preposterous result is that such works have to be 140 years old before we can treat them as being in the public domain. We proposed that specific provision be made for such works, so that they are treated as being part of the public domain after 75 years. It is unlikely that such a provision would have encountered significant opposition had it been proposed. Continue reading Copyright Revisions in Canada: Half a Loaf is Better Than None

Suggestions needed about the ongoing U.S. Copyright Extensions

ONGOING U.S. COPYRIGHT EXTENSIONS

U.S. COPYRIGHTS TO BE EXTENDED TO 115 YEARS, DECADE BY DECADE FROM THE ORIGINAL 14 YEARS!

THE SUPREME COURT SAYS IT NEVER HAS TO STOP!!!

Suggestions are more than welcome how to publicize this upcoming event before it even starts to happen!!!

Apparently everyone is keeping silent about the various copyright extensions coming up in Canada and the U.S.

In just a few years yet another bill will be introduced in the U.S. Congress to extend copyright that has quite literally been extended from 14 years to 115 years.

Read the previous article on why we need to start before the issue arises.

Ongoing U.S. Copyright Extensions

Can anything be done to stop the next U.S. extension or If not stop them, at least publicize them a little?

I should add that this is probably a losing battle even if it looks as if we are winning.

Here’s why:

When the last Australian Copyright Act was discussed in Parliament, they passed a resolution stating they would not extend copyrights.

Really.

However, just three years later, under economic warfare from, shall we just say, outside sources, they crumbled to the pressure and gave in.

The Canadian Parliament is currently in that position–and while some tell me they have enough signatures from those against any extensions, I will bet you lunch that they, too, crumble before it is over.

I would gladly lose every one of those wagers!!!
