Removing Ambiguities in U.S. Copyright Law

Removing Ambiguities in U.S. Copyright Law

The New York Times has a great article on John Conyers Jr. of Michigan, the senior Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, calling for revision of the United States Copyright Law.

“For too long the work of musicians has been used to create enormous profits for record labels, radio stations and others, without fairly distributing these profits to the artists.” Conyers says in the article, “Copyrights are a tool to be used by creators to earn a living from their work.” Conyers believes it is Congress’s responsibility to ensure “a fair marketplace.”
