The missing Daleks

The Snook has been faithfully taping every episode of Dr. Who since the ABC began airing them last year. I think he’s only missed one day. He then transfers them to the computer and burns them to CD. His goal, as I understand it, is to eventually own every single episode. Unfortunately a copyright dispute means that some of the most famous episodes (involving the Daleks) can’t be re-broadcast. I learned this from a great opinion piece in today’s Herald. The author goes on to explain why copyright extensions are a bad thing and how the proposed Free Trade Agreement with the US is going to result in the removal of many works from the public domain in Australia. I mean, really, can anyone honestly argue that “life plus 70 years” is that much more of an incentive to creation than “life plus 50 years”?
