[dvd-discuss] Extending The Arguments in Golan and Eldred

The basic argument in Golan (and Eldred) v Ashcroft is that retroactive 
extension of copyright does not promote progress. While neither case 
claims that changing the copyright from N years from publicatons to life+M 
years (M is a HUGE number) does not promote progress either, the same 
basic argument applies to the works of every author that died before the 
change in 1976-Also the fact that M is such a huge number AFTER the 
authors death.
