1. This court loves to espouse theories even more expansive than asked for by whomever they end up deciding in favor of—especially if by doing so it can help out monied interests (like multinational publishing conglomerates) and/or chip away at social programs hated by the right (like public libraries). It is entirely accurate to say that "it could mean the end of public libraries" regardless of what theory Wiley is pushing.
2. Yeah, despite any arguments from either side; after Citizens United I always brace for the SCOTUS to do the absolute worst.
3. I think you'll find the free market is only good when the rich people are running it. Arbitrage (from poor people) will destroy us all.
dios' law: if a claim is being made about the particular import of a Supreme Court decision or case that explicitly states or implies that the result will be alarming and yield a transformational new world, then the claimant of same doesn't have a fricking clue what the Supreme Court is actually deciding.
