Module 3 written assignment – mickey mouse and the public domain

Under current copyright law in the United States protections extend for the life of the author plus 50 years, or 75 years for a work of corporate authorship. Copy right law has been extended many times over the years providing further and further protection for copyright holders. Review the attached article which discusses the last time copyright protections were extended in 1998. That update extended copyright protections out 20 years beyond where they were at the time, thus Congress will likely in the very near future again consider extending copyright protection.

Using an analysis, explain the laws that govern copyright law. Include answers to the following questions. What is intellectual property? What laws govern intellectual property? Should further/lengthier copyright protections be extended to copyright holders? Should the law remain as it is or be shortened? Use the article and course material as a reference point and include at least one example from personal experience or original example in the analysis. Use rubric to meet the assignment expectations.

Support your argument in your paper by finding two outside references that relate to this issue.
