Mickey Mouse and James Joyce - Figure It Out

James Joyce, the famous Irish author, must be turning over in his grave. His grandson, Steven Joyce, is enforcing his copyrights on the senior Joyce's work, so much so that Dublin will likely have to cancel a celebratory event.

Here in Dublin, it's almost Bloomsday – the day depicted in Joyce’s novel Ulysses - June 16, 1904, the date on which Leopold Bloom took his fictional, but famous stroll through the streets of Dublin.

But, it looks like there will be no celebration here, given that copyrights extend almost a century. Here in the U.S., we have our own version of an
extended copyright act.

So, you can't copy this post until 2079, or something like that. Not that you'd want to anyway...
