"The U.S. Supreme Court upheld on Wednesday a 1998 law extending
copyright protection by 20 years, delaying when creative works such as
Walt Disney Co.'s Mickey Mouse cartoons, F. Scott Fitzgerald's novels
and George Gershwin's compositions become public property."

No surprise there, of course.  Vote was 7-2.
