: Just for the record, since I am baiting these folks, I’ll repeat here what I said in a comment below: I don’t defend Disney (having covered entertainment and come up against them at their control-freak worst). I also don’t necessarily defend the exact number of years now given to copyright.

But I do defend copyright holders against the arch language I’m reading everywhere: That by holding onto their creations, they are thieves. Bullshit. Creation itself is generous. Creation deserves compensation. Creation has value. Authors are copyright holders, too. They are not thieves.
