When I sat in the lecture, and heard the term monopoly, I’m sure everyone thought of the board game, y’know, the one that destroys friendships and exposes cheaters. But in the case of copyright, monopoly refers to the “exclusive possession or control of the supply of or a trade in a commodity or service.” It now takes 70 years after the author’s death, or 120 years if it is a corporate company. That’s crazy talk, I mean, who is going to want to wait that long to rework or reinvent a copyrighted piece of work, when there will be newer ideas in years to come. These rules for monopoly of copyright keep being updated. Will we see a time in the future when there will be an infinite amount of time for copyright?
