0 Revise Copyright Law to Respect Constitutional Provision, White House Petition

The Congress shall have Power…To promote the Progress of Science
and useful Arts, by securing for limited Tımes…
United States Constitution, Article I, Section 8

promote the Progress, I assert that the current copyright law is counterproductive and stifles progress through ill-advised regulations

limited Times, I adhere that limited times has grown in duration and magnitude, that it can no longer be classified as limited times, and is actually violating the Constitutional Provision

Copyright can extend up to 150+ years; This is outrageous and ill-conceived. It should be constrained to 50 years or lifespan: whichever is greater

Therefore, I petition the government to make revisions which are retroactive and respective of the original intent of the Constitution and is limited in scope
