Re: Starbucks sues tiny indigenous-owned coffeeshop for

Haida Nation might want to contact Professor Lawrence Lessig of Stanford Law School. He is a lawyer closely involved in issues of copyrite (who has addressed the Sup Court on issues very similar to this) and who is also leading up an organization which is aiming to create new possibilities for copyrite Creative Commons

... he lectures around the country, and was just yesterday at Cooper Union in NYC speaking on copyrite law and how big corporations are precisiely engaged in taking away the ability of folks to use supposedly copyrited material in creative ways...

This is not a pitch, believe me.. just thought it might be helpful to align with what his team is working on.. and think he might be interested..
