Eldred oral arguments

Lots of news on Eldred vs Ashcroft today. The best account I’ve seen so far of proceedings in the courtroom is this one by Kwindla Hultman Kramer, who has a press pass and was thus allowed to take notes in the court room. I tried to explain to a house mater yesterday why extending the copyright term is bad for creativity, but today I found this article which does a much better job than I did. Slashdot has some excellent links and a lengthy discussion as well.

This is Eldred oral arguments by Simon Willison, posted on 10th October 2002.
