There is an excellent article from Graham Philipson talking about copyright, called Copyright cop-out stiles innovation in which he rips publishers to pieces. His argument is that copyright is designed to protect publishers, not authors. One quote to give you the flavour: The publishers' actions highlight copyright's absurdities and the greed of its beneficiaries. They offer no justification for their actions other than a desire to protect income based on a technology and a business model invented centuries ago.

It's a viewpoint that I largely share, and if you're involved in publishing in any way at all, it's worth reading.
