Conde’ Nast or AOL Time Warner could ( possibly ) snag thousands of ‘dormant’ copyrights by putting a few researches to work, and then shelling out the relative few dollars.

Perhaps a limitation that only a ‘Natural’ person can use this? No corporations, Partnetships, or Business need try?

I was number 1176. Glad to see this is getting good attention.

I signed the petition, although I’m not an American Citizen. Because I feel nationality is not an issue here, and because US Copyright-law spreads itself through intensive lobbying , through the WIPO, through trade agreements to all parts of the world.

But from the reactions I get, many people feel relucant to sign this petition “because I’m not an American”. I have absolutely no idea how many people feel like this, but I think there are many. Maybe they are right, and is this petition in only aimed to US-Citizens.

Maybe the wording of the petition could be made more clearer for non-US-citizens. Are they too invited to sign? Yes or No? I think “yes”, but many feel “no”.
