Moderation is a fatal thing. . . . Nothing succeeds like excess.
Oscar Wilde 1854-1900
There is moderation even in excess.
Benjamin Disraeli 1804-1881
If music be the food of love, play on;
Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.
Shakespeare, Twelfth Night (I, i,1-3)
Copyright is good. Excess in copyright is not.
There are many parties in the copyright construct.
All of them must avoid excess in order for copyright to be sustainable.
When is success excess?
