R Street has released Guarding Against Abuse: Restoring Constitutional Copyright.
Here's an excerpt:
Conservatives who care about the original public meaning of the Constitution must not abandon our constitutional obligation. Conservatives believe that the words of the Constitution mean something. If the words mean something, if they mean anything, then copyright must expire. . . .
Overall, we can be supporters of a copyright regime that protects and compensates creators, a noble goal, while recognizing that the current system has gone haywire. It's time to restore our founding principles and recognize that constitutional copyright would unleash new creativity and economic growth.
