A great idea regarding copyright law

Lawrence Lessig has a great idea regarding copyright law. Basically, the idea is that, after 50 years(!), a work will pass into the public domain UNLESS the copyright holder pays a $1 ‘maintenance fee’. Seems ultra-reasonable to me.

Anyway, Mr. Lessig’s description is far more detailed than my own and also includes links to write to your congresspeople.
