    A few years ago, someone made a rather prescient comment about how universities were producing more lawyers than doctors and engineers, and posited about what would be the end result of such a mismatch of professions on society.

    We now see the result in all of it’s glory – the patent/copyright troll.

    Eminent Domain.

    The same way the government seizes your grandfather’s farm and gives to to a company to strip mine for uranium or coal could be used to free orphan works.

    If you leave money in an unattended account, the government eventually takes it ‘for the common good’ – the same is true for real estate, stocks and even gold. Out of production media should be treated the same way.

    The copyright cabal doesn’t want to compete with classic works. Much modern media is formula garbage and can’t stand up to the classics and they know this.
