"The Progress Of Science And Useful Arts":
Why Copyright Today Threatens Intellectual Freedom

(press release)

"NEW REPORT ON COPYRIGHT & FREE EXPRESSION - Music swapping -- encryption -- the frozen public domain -- where should we draw the line between rewarding creativity through the copyright system and society's competing interest in the free flow of ideas? Check out the Free Expression Policy Project's newest policy report,

"The Progress of Science and Useful Arts": Why Copyright Today Threatens Intellectual Freedom.

It covers "fair use," copyright term extension, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and much more -- without legalese."
