Replenishing the Public Domain

Professor Lessig, and others, have proposed an interesting solution to the Copyright Problem. The Eric Eldred Act would allow active works, like Mickey and Co. to remain protected, but allow abandoned, and commercially unviable works, to move into the Public Domain where they can be repurposed by others.

I haven't looked at all the detail's of this yet, but on the face of it, it makes sense.
