G.K.Chesterton's Works on the Web

copyright until[edit]

We have put active links within {{copyright until}}, though it seems that this is unnecessary, and probably detrimental. The template states that there is an active link built in, and when the work enters the public domain that the link will become active. — billinghurst sDrewth 16:40, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

Looks like the template is messed up, because those links are active now. Anyway, the only benefit to the template that I can see is that it may discourage people from adding texts that are out of copyright. As a tool to let people know about the expected year that the work will come out of copyright, it seems ridiculous, because US copyright law will likely change dramatically in the meantime. —Spangineerwp (háblame) 15:42, 26 March 2010 (UTC)
