Copyright exists to provide an incentive for people to create works. It is a time-limited monopoly, granted by the state. Once copyright has expired in a work it enters the public domain, where anyone can repurpose it to create new work. Copyright law has dramatically expanded in scope and term over the past hundred years. ORG supports reform and regulation of the copyright framework when it is in the interests of the creative economy, consumers and citizens in the digital age, but not when it is intended to support the business models of the analogue age, or grant competitive advantage to incumbent players in the market.
