[Chris Harlan] "By the reasoning of the cartoon, several centuries of copyright law should be voided. I think that's a ridiculous proposition."

Chris, don't get me wrong. I very much value the idea of intellectual property too. But I also value fair use, the public domain, and the human tradition of shared culture -- a tradition far far older than the current notion of copyright.

I don't think Nina Paley's intention with this video is say copyright shouldn't exist, rather it's to question how it should co-exist with the public domain in a digitally-enabled culture. The Bono Copyright Act has nothing to do with protecting society.
