Lessig on Eldred v. Ashcroft

For anyone interested in the copyright issues discussed in "Bloomsday and the Girl Scouts have something in common," there is a must-read article in the current issue of Legal Affairs by the lead lawyer in the Eldred case.

Lawrence Lessig believes he failed the country by losing the case, but I believe it was the justices who failed us. Lessig's account is compelling, and tragic. Via Brad DeLong, whose views are not far from mine on this one.
