Today's the day! In addition to taxes being due today (and we owe, yuck!), today is the day that Mickey Mouse shoulda, woulda come into the public domain.

Hey, thanks Congress, Supreme Court, Disney, MPAA, RIAA, and other content-hogs. you effectively own all of my cultural referents for the entire span of my life, plus. And that plus keeps going up. On whjose planet is this a "limited time"? How does this promote sciences and the useful arts? It doesn't.

Don't take my words for it, get it from the mouse's mouth directly: Reason: Interview (of sorts) with Mickey

So, today, as you go about your daily buysiness, think of all the cool things that could have been done iwht Mickey -online, in day-care centers, and so on, if only he were free. Cmon, everyone, MICKEY WANTS TO BE FREE!
