Dastar Corp. v. Fox Film Corp., U.S. Supreme Court No. 02-428, raises
the propriety of allowing Lanham Act protection of copyrightable works
which lack copyright protection -- protection provided without any
evidence of likelihood of anyone's confusion. I consider such protection
a violation of U.S. Const. Art. I, sec 8, cl 8.
    I am rapidly writing a law professor amicus brief supporting
Dastar's petition for certiorari.  Any law professor interested in
signing on is urged to email me off list.  I will send a draft for
approval out around Friday Nov. 15 and will need final approval over
that weekend.
    My apologies for cross posting.
