Once more into the breach
The Supreme Court will hear arguments in Eldred v. Ashcroft tomorrow. The suit seeks to declare unconstitutional the repeated extension of copyright term that has occurred over the last couple of decades.
Lessig, the lead attorney for Eldred, has lost this case at every level so far, but the Supreme Court chose to hear the case, so anything can happen.
The decision, of course, will arrive whenever the Supremes want it to, probably next spring.

And I'll hold my breath until next spring waiting for this Court to render a ruling that runs counter to the greedy interests of Big Bizness. I really don't think so, but hope springs eternal.
