The Tyranny of Copyright Laws

Justin Levine at CalBlog has another good piece on the Tyranny of Copyright laws:

The Tyranny of Copyright - Part III

Instapundit chimes in on what your humble blogger rails against on a near daily basis.

Particularly strange to note that there are apparently no royalties needed for German WWII aircraft designs, but payment is required for American designs. Further proof of the absolute racket that copyrights have become.

But I know there are still many who read this blog that think that model makers are somehow "stealing" from the corporations that originally built the actual full-scale military aircraft and vehicles.

Not enough for you? Then how about the outrageous "theft" being perpetrated by those taking pictures of the Eiffel Tower at night.

Any notions of fair use and public domain

have become a complete joke under the jack-boots of modern copyright laws.
