Bruce Lehman: "Our Attempts At Copyright Control Have Not Been Successful"


MichaelGeist.ca: “DMCA Architect Acknowledges Need For A New Approach“: (Former head of the Patent and Trademark Office, Bruce Lehman, influential in the creation of the DMCA, during a panel conference (available on video):
“. . . Lehman says that we are entering the “post-copyright” era for music, suggesting that a new form of patronage will emerge with support coming from industries that require music (webcasters, satellite radio) and government funding. While he says that teens have lost respect for copyright, he lays much of the blame at the feet of the recording industry for their failure to adapt to the online marketplace in the mid-1990s.”
