"The Clinton Administration has seen fit to submit a brief of
amici curiae to the Ninth Circuit US Court of Appeals arguing that
the Audio Home Recording Act of 1992 does not apply to Napster's
appeal of a copyright infringement suit brought by the Recording
Industry Association of America (RIAA) back in December."
"While anyone willing to hire a lawyer has the right to submit a
brief on any case, the thought of a government office using public
money to do so in a private dispute leaves a rather disgusting
taste in the mouth."
"And that's just for starters. The brief itself is such a
classic tour de force of Clintonesque semantic hair-splitting,
fraudulent weasel-wording, and spineless, opportunistic spin that
one may feel the need to bathe after reading it."
