Eldred vs. Ashcroft Here's a really nice article examining the Supreme Court review of the Sonny Bono Copyright Extension act. The upshot: the court will probably rule retroactive extensions are unconstitutional (quid pro nihilo) but very long terms probably are not--they're just bad policy. It's difficult to think of a moneyed interest group willing to fight for the public domain.
