Chris Sprigman:The Supreme Court's Copyright Extension Decision

On January 15 of this year, the Court upheld the [Sono Bono Copyright Term Extension] Act, 7-2. (Justice Ginsburg wrote for the majority; Justices Stevens and Breyer filed separate dissents.)

Not only is the result, in my view, erroneous, but the opinion that reached it is deeply flawed. It also bodes ill for the future, for it is yet another step in the direction of complete privatization of our culture, at the expense of the public domain.
