Okay, okay, maybe I'm a bit obsessed with the issue of copyright laws
and their impact on teaching film/TV (see my previous post about using
copyrighted videotapes), but a potentially significant case against
Kinko's photocopiers has, I believe, just been resolved by the U.S.
Supreme Court.
The case focuses on Kinko's course packets--the collections of essays
that many of us have come to rely upon for efficient teaching.  (How
well I remember myown undergraduate days when I would buy 15 books for a
single course and read only a chapter from each.)  I don't know the
details.  Can anybody fill me in?
      Hear that lonesome whippoorwill?
      He sounds too blue to fly.
      The midnight train is whining low,
      I'm so lonesome I could cry.
