Eldred vs Ashcroft

Lawrence Lessig, a Stanford Professor who believed the CTEA was unconstitutional, represented Eric Eldred, a web publisher, who made a career of making works available as they passed into the public domain. In the case later known as Eldred v. Ashcroft, they challenged the constitutionality of the Act together. It went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, but unfortunately, they lost.
