Suddenly we'd have The Beatles in every single commercial on television, because it'd be free to use them.

Commercials currently don't all contain the most popular music out of copy-write so this is obviously nonsense.

Even with old movies no one cares about, public domain means that every Walmart in America is full of "10 movies for $1!" collections, but since no one makes any money off those movies no one is bothering to restore them. On one hand at least they're readily available. On the other hand the quality is pure trash.

Nice work turning the argument on it's head. The point is that non-commercial restoration/distribution/whatever is enabled through copy-write reform.
