Information Age - Privacy, Copyright, Trademark, and Patent Issues

"The primary objective of copyright is not to reward the labor of authors, but "[t]o promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts." To this end, copyright assures authors the right to their original expression, but encourages others to build freely upon the ideas and information conveyed by a work. This result is neither unfair nor unfortunate. It is the means by which copyright advances the progress of science and art."

- Sandra Day O'Connor, Feist Publications, Inc. v. Rural Telephone Service Co., 1991

"No Patents on Ideas," Thomas Jefferson letter to Isaac McPherson, August 13, 1813 http://www.larryblakeley.com/Privacy_Copyright_Patent/no_patents_on_ideas__tjefferson.htm

"Today's copyright owners enjoy an unprecedented ability to restrict personal uses of copyrighted expression and to constrain subsequent author borrowing from existing works in the creation of new ones. While such expansion may, at least to some degree, serve as a beneficial incentive for the dissemination of creative expression, it also poses the danger of chilling discourse and cultural advancement, thus defeating copyright's essential democratic purpose."
