    I'm an author too, and 25 years sounds perfectly reasonable to me. This eternal copyright bullshit is getting ridiculous, and it's absolutely destroying our common culture. We're only able to share past memories at the behest of corporations.

    How would you feel if someone came and took your house after 25 years?
    How would you feel if 25 years from now, the architect of your house (which you bought from a previous owner) came and demanded royalty payments?

    Proud supporter of nuclear power!
