Reclaim the Public Domain!

If you believe that an unlimited copyright term is a bad thing then why don't you sign this petition to congress? The petition asks congress to consider passing the Public Domain Enhancement Act:
This statute would require American copyright owners to pay a very low fee (for example, $1) fifty years after a copyrighted work was published. If the owner pays the fee, the copyright will continue for whatever duration Congress sets. But if the copyright is not worth even $1 to the owner, then we believe the work should pass into the public domain.
Pretty sensible if you ask me.
