A solution for copyright law

Perhaps it’s the beer and cheese talking, but something just came to me as we were talking about copyright law at Christine’s party.

Disney keeps getting copyright extended every time it looks like Mickey Mouse is under threat of falling into the public domain. Right now copyright expires 75 years after the death of the author.

Roland Barthes declared the death of the author in 1967.

All copyrighted materials should thus fall into the public domain in 2042.
