1/15/03, 11:48 am – Loss For Public Interest

The Supreme Court decided against Eldred 7-2. Lawyer for the plaintiff Lawrence Lessig (who is one of my new heroes) has links to the decision and his reaction.

This decision exemplifies our contemporary socitiety’s unfortunate balance of power weighting corporate interest over public interest.

I hope that enough people will understand the intent and effect of our copyright law to demand change from our legislatures.
