random quotes ... to amuse, inspire, enrage:
Congress may extend existing monopoly privileges ad infinitum under the majority's analysis. By failing to protect the public interest in free access to the products of inventive and artistic genius--indeed, by virtually ignoring the central purpose of the Copyright/Patent Clause--the Court has quitclaimed to Congress its principal responsibility in this area of the law. Fairly read, the Court has stated that Congress' actions under the Copyright/Patent Clause are, for all intents and purposes, judicially unreviewable. That result cannot be squared with the basic tenets of our constitutional structure.

Gotta say, I’m happier w/ DOJ than I have been in a long time: Getting out of #GSU, and weighing in against #DOMA.
huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/22/aar… DOJ considered #AaronSwartz writings in prosecution decision. Classic political persecution tactic.
