    Burdensome copyright laws have always been an excessive expansion of intellectual property rights.

    He needs to stick to judging cases brought before him, instead of wishing he was a legislator.

    The judge is full of it. The media wouldn't get as much exposure as is does if it weren't for linking to its materials. This is just more of that current trend toward not letting failing industries fail if they can't keep up.

    So newspapers are struggling? The guy tht invented the 8 track tape moved. How hard is this?

    Ah those copyright laws.


    They're so complex that it takes a publisher with the wisdom of soloman to really understand them.

    They're designed as a system to insure full employment for copyright lawyers.

    They're freakin nuts, let me tall ya.

    They didn't used to be, but they are now.

    He dreams of making law instead of interpreting it. Clearly. You're railing about HIM being able to say whatever he wants, while HE wishes to limit what YOU can say?
