Court has gone completely Mental

I received this note from a friend, reacting to the article, Sentence First, Verdict Later by Horace Cooper.

“Just one more argument that the Supreme Court has gone completely whacky
without even consistency to their follies”

Well said. From the article:

It boils down to this: today’s Supreme Court believes protecting intangible property is so important that if you use a Panasonic digital video recorder to illegally duplicate pornographic copyrighted materials, Panasonic can get sued. But if Panasonic or some other firm wants to relocate into space that includes what was once your living room in order to operate a porn distribution center, the Court’s concluded that your property rights are negligible.

Simply amazing.

“We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.
— Ayn Rand
