(And how ironic that poets like Wilbur don't have financial control over how their own work gets disseminated.) I work mostly with the poetry of Emily Dickinson which, although written in the nineteenth century, is _still_ under copyright and likely to remain so for the indefinite future. The irony here is that the current popularity and therefore reproductions (a sizeable income for publishers) of Dickinson's poetry have come in no small measure from the scholars and teachers who have disseminated and promoted knowledge of her work. I know this is complicating Steve's attempts to institutionalize scholarly archiving, but isn't there some way those of us affected by such copyright restrictions can mount a collective argument as to why publishers would benefit and not lose from such archiving?
