    I feel like the rest of the question for the second article should be “Or May the Families and Publishers Who Didn’t Create the Work Please Profit From It?”

    I’d love to see copyright change to life of the author, cutting the “plus 70 years.” But I’m less concerned by “protecting” work the author didn’t intend to publish and more concerned by ensuring that corporations can’t profit from work that should belong to the world, at least digitally. That Simon & Schuster charges $12 for the Kindle version of The Great Gatsby should be a crime.
