This is unfortunate

I saw a comment posted here in response to one of my frequent commentors, Third Generation Chicago Native with regards to Dr. Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech.
The "I have a dream" speech is not in the public domain. The King family claims the copyrights.
I had to look this up and found this at Wikipedia. So once upon a time you might be able to read a text of this speech, now you can't. It was such an historic occasion now the only thing you can do is watch a video of it. If it was my decision I don't know if I would have restricted it hiding behind a copyright. This isn't a criticism by any means.
