Kembrew McLeod

Freedom of expression : resistance and repression in the age of intellectual property. University of Minnesota Press, 2007

KF2979.M348 2007

 

Freedom of Expression covers the ways in which intellectual property laws have been used to privatize all forms of expression—from guitar riffs and Donald Trump’s “you’re fired” gesture to human genes and public space—and in the process stifle creative expression. Kembrew McLeod illustrates how privatization clashes against our right to free speech and shared resources.  Although not a lawyer, the author “brings to an increasingly important (and insane) body of law precisely the skepticism the very best lawyer would” (Foreword by Lawrence Lessig).

 

Frank S. Ravitch.

Masters of illusion : the Supreme Court and the religion clauses. New York University Press, c2007

KF4783.R38 2007

 

In Masters of Illusion, Frank S. Ravitch argues that both hard originalism (a strict focus on the intent of the framers) and neutrality are illusory in religion clause jurisprudence, the former because it can not live up to its promise for either side in the debate and the latter because it is simply impossible in the religion clause context. Yet these two principles have been used in almost every Supreme Court decision addressing religion clause questions. Ravitch unpacks the various principles of religion clause interpretation, drawing on contemporary debates, to demonstrate that these principles do not work in a pluralistic society. If, however, the Court drew on a variety of principles instead of a single notion of neutrality to decide whether or not laws facilitated or discouraged religious practices, the result could be a more equitable approach to religion clause cases.
