  • Basis of copyright law today:Copyright was considered so important to the progress of the country that it was stated explicitly on the first page of the United States Constitution!The specific clause is Clause 8, section 1: “To promote the progress of science and useful arts, by securing for a limited time to authors and inventors the exclusive rights to their respective writings and discoveries;”Like many statements in our Constitution, it is open in part to interpretation. For instance, ‘rights’ are exclusive for a limited time, but exactly for how long has changed several times in legislation passed over the last 200 years. I’d also like to point out that the founders recognized that ensuring creators’ rights and profits would stimulate creativity, which they considered vital for a democratic nation.
