"The Congress shall have power... [t]o promote the progress of science and useful arts, by securing for limited times to authors and inventors the exclusive right to their respective writings and discoveries" --- The Constitution of the United States of America, Article 1, Section 8
"The primary objective of copyright is not to reward the labour of authors, but '[t]o promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts.' To this end, copyright assures authors the right to their original expression, but encourages others to build freely upon the ideas and information conveyed by a work.... This result is neither unfair nor unfortunate. It is the means by which copyright advances the progress of science and art." --- Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, Feist Publications, Inc. v. Rural Telephone Services Co., Inc.
