Whither next?

There are several copyright and copyright-related protections which should be changed, or fully taken advantage from. Here's a probably incomplete list. In a second step, an attempt will be made to prioritise the issues. Further work can be done to include more objectives, order by importance (for us and/or everyone), order by activity on the topic by us and others, order by impact. Work on this page has been re-started after a mailing list discussion following a policy statement by Creative Commons, supporting a copyright reform.

Brainstorming

This is a list of most things mentioned on various pages, chats and mailing lists. Several items are very similar or identical. This list does not necessarily reflect any priorities, it's purpose is to put together all issues that have been mentioned across different communication channels.

  • Freedom of orphan works (see Category:Orphan works for now)
  • Freedom of panorama everywhere: commons:Commons:Freedom of panorama campaign
  • Get Library of Congress to digitize all U.S.A. copyright records (wikisource:Catalog of Copyright Entries)
  • Get U.S.A. to apply rule of the shorter term
  • Get U.K. to officially kill "sweat of the brow"
  • Repeal database rights in EU
  • Repeal Sonny Bono Copyright Extension Act
  • Fix absurd copyright terms in Mexico
  • Get works by U.S.A. states added to public domain
  • Get EU government and government-funded works (not only research as "now" [1]) in the public domain (or under a free CC license)
  • Get all USA government-funded research open access (page should be on Meta)
  • Scrap special copyright extension (30 years in France for "dead in combat").
  • Reduce the copyright term to 50 pma (or 14+14 as originally in USA, or whatever)
  • Standartized limitations/exceptions
  • Freedom of deep space objects (this is a very low importance item)
  • Term reform/limitation (i.e., fighting the next wave of term extensions)
  • Copyright status of government works / official works
  • Reproductions of 2D works --> should make sure that the law/regulations are very clear that this is not a new work
  • Software patents
  • Exceptions to circumvent rules (disability-DRM, archives etc)
  • Copyright on publicly funded works
  • Incentives for Open Government Data
  • Public Sector Information
  • Raising treshhold for required added creativity (to qualify for copyright)
  • Collecting societies (and Creative Commons)
  • Principle in applying the most flexible rule
  • Free use of product packaging images
  • Clear rules on what constitutes mass production
  • International agreement excluding money and postage stamps from copyright
  • Specific issues in countries with "interrupted history" (e.g. Baltic states)
  • Shortening copyright term for media channels
  • Opt-in copyright instead of current automatic system

Condensed list

This is an attempt to create a shorter, non-repetitive list of the above gathered points.

  • Shorten copyright terms (and prevent their expansion)
  • Global Freedom of Panorama
  • Free use of Orphan Works
  • Digitalisation of copyright records
  • Rule of shorter term
  • Raising threshold for required added creativity (incl. killing Sweat the brow)
  • Repeal EU Database Rights
  • Have government created works (incl. EU, EU Member States, US States, etc.) released into the public domain
  • Have publicly funded works released under free licenses
  • Standardised limitations and exceptions (incl. removing special extensions)
  • Software patents
  • Exceptions to DRM
  • Open Government Data (& FoI)
  • Public Sector Information
  • Collective Rights Management
  • Use of product packaging images
  • Copyright on money and stamps
  • Opt-in copyright system

Prioritisation

The points should be prioritised along criteria like impact, urgency, feasibility, importance to community, positioning of other organisations, fit-to-strategy and falling within the scope of Wikimedia. All these criteria need to be better defined. A first and partial overview of the "importance to community" could be found in the results of the Policy Issues Survey 2013.
