EFF Goes to Washington

Washington, DC, 3:26 a.m. EST

Braving briskly mild weather and motion-detector floodlights, EFF staffers have arrived on the steps of the Supreme Court, claiming the first seats in the line reserved for members of the Supreme Court bar. The public line reached capacity at approximately 10:00 p.m. on Monday night. An informal survey of line-sitters indicates (if t-shirts can be trusted) that the majority supports the preservation of the Betamax doctrine. Further updates, laptop battery life permitting.
