Today in Copywrong

Congress may take books, musical compositions and other works out of the public domain, where they can be freely used and adapted, and grant them copyright status again, the Supreme Court ruled Wednesday.

One of the plaintiff's lawyers remarked that the decision “suggests Congress is not required to pay particularly close attention to the interests of the public when it passes copyright laws.”

Gee, ya think? Just strike out "copyright" and the description would be a fair one, sez me.
