According to the New York Times, the Supreme Court has upheld the law that permits restoration of copyright protection to works formerly in the public domain (we first mentioned the case last October). This means that possibly millions of foreign works that previously had been freely available, such as Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf,” the British films of Alfred Hitchcock, and the drawings of M. C. Escher, will once again be under copyright. What do you think? Does restoring copyright to these works make sense?
