Reading about “fair use” and copyright law is depressing.
I completely understand the concern – as someone who wants people to give me money for my intellectual
property at some point — but it’s so clutching, and grasping — little fences hammered in everywhere, and zealous wardens sharpening their blades.
And it means I can’t have Buddy Holly lyrics in my fantasy novel.
Which is a deep, abiding tragedy.
