Pooh and copyright

I’ve created a few original characters in my various works, and I hope to make money from them when they catch the public’s imagination. But I don’t see the point of them then being locked away from other authors for 70 years after I’m gone because of copyright. I’d like to see that come down, but for now, we should enjoy stuff like murderous Winnie the Pooh and other reimaginings of nineteenth and early twentieth century characters.
