    SCOTUS as presently constituted will screw us with a smile.

    What we need to do is simply get the damn thing repealed legislatively.  That might be difficult.  I suspect the fatcats at RIAA and MPAA are supporting D candidates so they can a) look cool to their customer base AND b) pull the strings on the candidates to get this draconian shit passed or block us repealing any of the earlier draconian shit.  

    In any case I have a simpler solution: Stop buying their products entirely.  Send them a postcard telling them why.  Enough people do this and they will start to see they're losing more market share than they're gaining by being assholes, and cooler heads will prevail.  And by then it will be too late, as a grassroots open source music & film industry will have sprouted like te punk rock scene of the 80s, with its collective upraised middle finger to the record companies of its time.

    We did it then, we can do it again, and this time make it stick, permanently.
