Creative economy guru, John Howkins, has a plan for a project over the next few years culminating in a congressional styled conference in London in 2010. It will celebrate, commiserate and investigate three hundred years of copyright law in England, since the passing of the Statute of Anne in 1709, and most importantly will chart a course for the future. This chapter considers three principles that might be invoked to make copyright material more legally accessible in the digital environment and thereby starts a journey towards Copyright 2010.
