The State of Things is a show produced by North Carolina Public Radio. This week host Frank Stasio interviewed James Boyle, a Duke law professor and co-founder of the Center for the Study of the Public Domain, about his new book The Public Domain. Boyle explains how the public domain is getting smaller and smaller and the ways modern copyright laws are strangling accessibility to 20th century culture.
