Subject: Copyright Extens.Case @ SCOTUS 10/9/02
Tomorrow the Supreme Court Of The United States will hear legal challenges to the Sonny Bono extension [ad infinitum?] of copyright for works created/published in the US.

The issues being brought up in the challenges are discussed in the    Sonny Bono Copyright Extension thread, but I started this one to draw attention to the court's timetable.

I have heard discussions of the issues recently on PBS, and maybe there will be more public airing of them in the next few days.
