    Copyright laws are intended to guarantee protections during the author's lifetime and that of his immediate heirs, so basically a generation and a half, hence the 75 year convention. It's a practical attempt to protect royalties from intellectual property. I doubt arrogance really enters into it, nor does fashion. If memory serves, William Hogarth had his prints copyrighted by an act of Parliament since his engravings were a major source of income that were based on his paintings. They were soon bootlegged, with the result that profits were being siphoned off by counterfeiters. Yes. 1734 Copyright Act, extended and replaced in 1911 to cover books, drawings, music, paintings, etc. Period was for life plus 50 years. So this has a long history.
