Nicely done graph showing the effect of recent copyright changes on the public domain. The interactive Flash version is pretty well done, too.

    The thing is, a bunch of people (with a lot of money) will look at that graph and say, "All RIGHT!"

    Welcome to the world post-transitory industrialization/equalization. The few have always ruled over the many, and the last couple hundred years has been quite a fluke.

    2 things:
    1) Sign the Petition to Reclaim Our Public Domain!
    2) It annoys me when graphs lie like that. Sure, the number labelling is correct, but showing 5 million as looking like 0 is deceptive. It also puzzled me, because I had a lot of trouble believing that there was no public domain before 1960. It's too bad, because they really do have a good point with which I agree, I just wish they wouldn't lie to convey their point.
