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?

Curious,
Joe Egert
