I like how, as a classical composer, I hate copyright and I hate that it makes me wish some of my favourite composers dies fifty years ago so that I could at least illegally access their sheet music through Canadian websites, where it would be public domain, yet I'd rather not part with it because it means that I might just make a living one day from the pieces I write.

It's a delicate balance we must strike here.

Hey, fun fact, we can blame the Liberals for this one, as always, because it turns out that, in order to suck G.W. Bush's dick just a little more, the lame duck decided that it'd be a great idea to tack another 20 years onto our copyright term as part of a US-Australia free trade agreement.

So thanks, John Howard.
