"Examples like this should be considered by those libertarians who advocate IP and who think that 'the courts' could just figure out the gray areas easily. They do not seem to realize this is purely artificial law, giving rise to insoluble questions -- when the goal of the court is not to do justice, but to construe a decree of a legislature, you cannot expect just, or predictable, results."
