With DRM going splat, many companies are trying digital rights manipulation. And that goes for the government, too. They already altered copyright law in this country to keep certain works from falling in the public domain. Recently, they passed the URAA, which could revert copyright to foreign works already in the public domain. This was challenged by the Center For Internet And Society. They were successful -- the judge ruled that it was a 1st Amendment problem, as these are supposed to be works anyone can use, and it is taking property away from the public.
