How long should copyright last? According to RIAA, MPAA and other copyright organizations, indefinitely. However, those are the organizations that couldn't even recount the reasons why copyright law was created in the first place - they think it's to give them a license to print money. However, the real reason is to further the creation of new works by granting the author a certain amount of exclusivity to reap the benefits of its creation. A Cambridge researcher has looked into how long the optimal protection period should last to best serve the original goal of copyright law - and has come with an answer that has the industry scrambling for counterstudies: Apparently the optimal protection period is just 14 years.
