Electronic Frontier Foundation: Supreme Court Affirms That No One Owns the Law

Electronic Frontier Foundation: Supreme Court Affirms That No One Owns the Law. “In a major victory for open government and fundamental due process, the Supreme Court ruled [April 27] that the annotations in a state’s official legal code—summaries of court decisions and other sources that explain the state’s laws—cannot be copyrighted. That is, that there cannot be a better-explained version of the law available only to those who can afford to pay for it. The law, in any form, must be accessible to all.”
