Petition to Reclaim the Public Domain

As I mentioned in an earlier post (to which I'd love to link, but I've been too lazy to get archives working on blogger) Lawrence Lessig's plan to introduce a bill that charges minimal maintenance fees for copyright will most likely spawn a niche market of copyright maintenance service providers. However, it is a step in the right direction to point out that we need SOME solution to the problem of copyrighted content held captive by the law (not at the owner's choice). So, I suggest you go take a look at the Petition to Reclaim the Public Domain and add your name if the idea strikes you as better than the current situation.
