I think that's a great idea. I like to think it will be "good enough"
by then (then again, I thought it was there a couple of weeks ago).

How would we get the media attention ?

As for this :

How does this sound :
THAT the creation of original works is nourished by wide 
accessibility of earlier works, including a vibrant public domain

Also, would it make sense to throw in a reference to Russell's
favourite, Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,
specifically :
>Everyone has the right [...] to seek, receive and impart 
>information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.
