Here's some really good news.
Today I noticed one of the sites hosted by Detritus.net has
been getting LOTS of traffic for the past few days. Over a
million hits! The site is Tom Forsythe's
creativefreedomdefense.org, which is a home for his photos
of Barbie, subject of a 2-year old lawsuit by Mattel.

It turns out all this web attention is due to the fact that
a U.S. District Court judge has DISMISSED the case, saying
"Forsythe's rights to free expression held more weight than
the company's trademarks and intellectual property
 rights". yes!!

here's one of the many pages reporting on it:
