Reflections on the scope of contemporary copyright protection
“One can easily accept that authors of literary and musical works should be granted some sort of property protection for their intellectual works. However, in the last few decades, copyright protection has overgrown its original rationales. It protects far too many works, and offers far too broad protection. We must apply the fair use defence more vigorously; or else copyright will stifle creativity eventually.” Critically discuss this statement with reference to decided case law. You may refer to more than one jurisdiction; you may limit your discussion to one type of subject matter (e.g. literary works or musical works, etc).
