Lessig files new challenge to copyright laws

from the do-3-copylefts-make-a-copyright? dept.
Copyright Anonymous Coward writes "Larry Lessig and his friends at the Stanford Law School Center for Internet and Society today filed a new constitutional challenge to the copyright laws. The focus of the new lawsuit (styled Kahle v. Ashcroft) is the consequences of the removal of "formalities" like registration, notice and renewal from copyright, and the resulting creation of a large class of "orphan" works (i.e., works that are not commercially viable, but nonetheless remain under copyright and are therefore not easily available for others to archive, preserve, and build on). Take a look at http://cyberlaw.stanford.edu/about/cases/kahle_v_a shcroft.shtml for a copy of the complaint, press release, and FAQ."
