I got a copy of the decision, which I can share with anyone who would like
to read it. I am not sure whether it is legitimate to send it to this
list, though. I can also send. My thanks to Joel Bresler for point to the
Lessig article about his efforts. I have just e-mailed Lessig, telling him
that a $1 fee for renewal of copyright would simply mean that publishers
would routinely renew everything. I suggested $1000, to be bargained down
to $500 (or $500 bargained down to $250, whichever is more saleable).
These are exciting developments and I hope that list members who follow
them will keep us appraised.
