Comment: Re: SHK 19.0016 Books to Buy
On the upcoming digitized Henslowe-Alleyn papers, Gabriel Egan reassures
us: "I'll be happy to report how to break the locks when the product
appears, since it is of course immoral for anyone to lock this stuff
away in the first place."
Can Gabriel Egan describe his ideal copyright law for authors living and
dead that he would abide by? Would they or their literary estates be
protected? If so, for how long? What in his law would constitute foul
use? And what penalty would his law assign those "morally charged"
privateers who break it? Knighthood?
