Oh, There’ll Be PlentyPublished 20 years, 4 months past
So last night Kat and I headed down to the Cinematheque to meet up with Ferrett, Gini, and Jeff to see Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter. Wow! It was… well, it was… I mean to say, it… it’s not really describable. But it was quite funny. I might pick it up on DVD if it ever comes available. As Ferrett said on the way out, “Oh, I can’t wait for the commentary track for that one.”
Meantime, the recent ruling on Eldred v. Ashcroft sparked a lot of debate on a computer book authors list to which I belong. I stayed out of it for a while, because I didn’t have much to say, and then suddenly—as is often my wont—I realized I had something to say after all. So I said it, and I figured, what the heck, I could say it here too. So if you want to know what I think about copyright terms, feel free to read away. If not, no sweat. It’s automatically copyrighted either way, as it happens, and now nobody else can say the same thing for more than a century, or something like that. How much sense does that make?
I still don’t know why I think so, but this is darned cool. I’m probably just jealous I didn’t think of it first.
