Looking Forward to Legal Reform

(p.147) Chapter 10 Looking Forward to Legal Reform
The Soul of Creativity
Stanford University Press

This chapter proposes how the law in the United States can be reformulated to incorporate measures manifesting a greater sensitivity to authors' needs in maintaining the integrity of their texts. The challenge is to formulate a set of reforms that will incorporate authorship morality through new measures designed to supplement, but not displace completely, the current legal system. This challenge is substantial but it can be accomplished. The key to crafting such reforms lies in paying greater attention to the intrinsic dimension of creativity and all of the forces motivating authorship rather than just those that are based on economic incentives.
