>> Supreme Court Says Congress May Re-Copyright Public Domain Works
>> "Congress may take books, musical compositions and other works out
>> of the public domain, where they can be freely used and adapted,
>> and grant them copyright status again, the Supreme Court ruled
>> In a 6-2 ruling, the court said that, just because material enters
>> the public domain, it is not "territory that works may never exit."
>> The top court was ruling on a petition by a group of orchestra
>> conductors, educators, performers, publishers and film archivists
>> who urged the justices to reverse an appellate court that ruled
>> against the group, which has relied on artistic works in the public
>> domain for their livelihoods.
