Supreme Court on Monday in support of Eric Eldred, an online publisher who
is challenging the constitutionality of the Sonny Bono Copyright Term
Extension Act."

"The prominent scholars supporting Mr. Eldred include Yochai Benkler, a
professor at New York University School of Law; Jessica Litman, a law
professor at Wayne State University who wrote Digital Copyright; and
Milton Friedman, a Nobel Prize recipient who is a former economics
professor at the University of Chicago.  Groups supporting Mr. Eldred
include the Association of Research Libraries, the Digital Future
Coalition, the College Art Association, the National Humanities Alliance,
and the Consortium of College and University Media Centers."
