It seems that certain organizations are always wanting to extend the time of copyrights. Things like this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright_Term_Extension_Act

which really is the perfect example of how easy it is to buy Congressmen.

But at some point, maybe in 70 years, or maybe in 200 years, human creativity, it belongs to all of us, and that creativity should be jointly owned by all of of us.

What Shakespeare wrote, his exact words, it's something we inherit, the day we are born. And for old photos too.
