Disney wins, World loses

The Supreme Court struck down the appeal against the Sonny Bono copyright extension act. I haven't gone through the opinions yet, but my guess is that they say copyright term must ultimately be determined by Congress.

I guess ultimately this issue needs to be protected by the electorate through Congress, but I am very disappointed to hear that they also allowed Congress to make retroactive extensions. I need to read the opinions on this before commenting further.
