One of the core issues here is a variant on the fundamental question, "What's worth preserving?"
For most of us, the answer would be "everything". I get a kick out of reading mundane, slice-of-life moments from PDF's of old regional newspapers, probably more than from viewing a digitized image of the Magna Carta. The value we assign to preservation, i.e., archiving, is a floating quantity.
But, as always, perceived value needs to be matched by monetary value. Even the monks who hand-duplicated ancient manuscripts had to be fed and sheltered... there's always a cost. Librarians and archivists working primarily with paper archives faced this, too, but it only occurred at long intervals; today, our proliferation of digital formats means that the archivist's job is nearly continuous. As soon as a collection has been fully migrated from one fading medium to the next, greatest platform, you can bet that the process will begin again, as new technology becomes old. Preservation cycles formerly measured in centuries are now measured, at best, in decades.
And someone needs to pay. Continuously.
As a result, archiving efforts for the biggest, most prestigious collections are funded, because we can all agree on that question of value. Not so much, though, for media of secondary interest; those are likely to be ignored until hardware vanishes, file formats disappear or magnetic coercivity fades into oblivion. Sometimes, content's best hope is that it will drop below that secondary threshold, into the realm of "quirky ephemera", where oddballs like me might step in and volunteer to migrate the media.
So maybe that's the next great role for the world's underused, underappreciated network of public libraries -- archiving and preservation of mid-value content. Makerspaces and 3D printers are nice, but professional librarians all have advanced degrees in the fields that would make them indispensible to this effort.
A B/W telly receives color... wait, I meant "colour"... signals, but displays them in black and white. License pricing was intended to accommodate the impoverished viewer, who likely couldn't afford a color-capable set. These days, if you've got a black and white set, you must be a collector of rare, vintage electronics -- so, by that same logic, should be surcharged for having enough disposable income to dabble in such an elitist hobby.
The Comcast Gift Delivery Truck is circling DC right now, trying to drop off baskets of joy to the Supremes' homes; turns out the lobbyists aren't allowed to stroll the Justices' hallways, for some reason. Not as easy as Congress!
Pretty thin claim to make... Crestor (rosuvastatin calcium) is a fairly mainstream, run-of-the-mill statin... no unique mechanism of action; in other words, you could take any of about a half-dozen other common drugs to achieve the same effect. However, there are two actual orphan drugs approved -- mipomersen and lomitapide -- with novel mechanisms of action, totally unlike statins, and possibly more effective. If this one me-too drug qualifies as an orphan, so does Lipitor, Mevacor, Pravachol... patent extensions for everybody!
The language of the law is everything, and sloppy language makes sloppy law. Clearly, the statute was drafted by someone who'd just seen Matthew Broderick defeat a military computer in "War Games"... and that was their mental image of "access a computer"-- back door trickery. Absent careful language, they never contemplated accessing a server through its big, public, front door. And felony convictions are the result.
