Public Domain

August 31, 2017

Till Mickey Mouse is in the Public Domain, corporations control the government. Disney tells the government to jump and they say how high Mickey?

This video by “Adam Ruins Everything” explains why nothing is in the Public Domain anymore, and why that is not good.

Political Book Advances, Musea E-mail Club

April 24, 2017

This FAIR blog post covers one of the 27 points I mentioned in my article Censored Art News. 3. The few major book publishing companies give huge unwarranted book advances to politicians for their books. This seems like a legal way to buy influence for both the publishing company and the parent company that owns them. Thanks Fair for covering this.
