There are Moments

When I wish someone would just take Disney down, and get the damned copyrights back to the way they're supposed to be, i.e. putting things back into the common domain after 20 years. Patents only go 20 years, so should copyrights, so far as I'm concerned, long enough to make a good profit, and then profit everyone else. There's a *reason* generic drugs are cheap enough to afford, the patent ran out on them.

What made me think of it even more was LibriVox.org, which records common domain books for anyone to download and listen to. I used to work for Distributed Proofreaders for Project Gutenberg for much the same reasons. Uhm, yeah, that's probably where my proofreading skills got pretty good.

Okay, having looked through Distributed Proofreaders again, my brain is like, I could do a couple pages a day, couldn't I? I used to plow through dozens a day after working even. Or hey... that final formatting round looks really good....
