I thought so, too, till we had one).

As for Eldred and Judge Birch, take heart! Potter Stewart saying that he blew it on Bowers helped create the climate that led first to Roemer and eventually to Lawrence. This isn’t quite that, but it ain’t chopped liver, either.

As Bob Dylan once said, “In the final end, he won the war, after losing every battle.” Willingness to fight (and, yes, sometimes one may lose) the battles that leads to eventual victory. You and your client’s willingness to go for it, to make an expansive argument, will be justified.

is there some state or federal office orsome advocacy group that is on point for this sort of …stupidity?

The judges words on the importance of copyright are some of the finest I have ever seen. He was great on Eldred, also.

Funny anecdote: My girlfriend just started a graduate course at BU in media law and when the professor asked if anyone knew anything about copyright, she exclaimed, “Free Mickey!” He smiled and said, “Who said that!?” It led to an interesting discussion of the Eldred case. To the assembled 22- and 23-year-olds, any amount of time over 70 years sure seemed “un”-limited!

p.s. Nice picture of Willem! Must be that you have a great-looking wife… ;-)

While you were gone, we managed to get a voting thing set up, where you can vote for a wide variety of people for governor, with or without any regard for issues, experience, or height. :)
