Summary:

"In the digital age, 'print run' does not exist. 'Number of copies' can only be guessed at. Granting a license 'for a term' as though it is time limited is ridiculous. But what should be clear is that “fair dealing” for purposes of review and criticism should be allowed. Using copyright to extort valid academic commentary on poetry seems, to my mind, obscene."
