Wow I love this: today is the launch of the e. e. cummings free poetry archive! A project that shows what we can do when works enter the public domain.

And this is why the copyright term shouldn't be this obscenely long. Imagine a world in which copyright only lasts several years and is non-transferable. This would eliminate all of the abuse potential while retaining all of the good intentions. Piracy would become mostly unnecessary too — why torrent something when you could just legally get it for free if you wait a year or two?

@darius neat use of yaml heredocs to preserve the original whitespace!

@edsu @darius Yes very nice archive and very cool YAML use! This is basically also how we did THE THING archive, to preserve message formatting.
