worse yet is the chance that every revision you make and ought to, but don't, discard is enabled to come back into your work posthumously out of some noble attempt to achieve your true literary intention. Ah, but how I shudder as I digress... At 03:11 PM 5/15/03, you wrote:
Surely anyone who owns copyright in a work has the right to destroy that copyright work. They don't owe it to society to maintain it. There have been many cases where famous literary figures have destroyed their own drafts or personal notes, or have requested that such documents be destroyed on their death. I shudder to think how one can introduce, let alone police a law that required that (say) everything I ever wrote must never be destroyed.
