NPR's Nina Totenberg reports on today's arguments before the Supreme Court
on whether Congress was wrong to extend copyright protections. Congress
gave copyright holders of movies, books and other creative products an
extra 20 years of exclusive rights, bringing the total to the lifetime of
the creator, plus 70 years. Critics say that period is too long and the
works should be in the public domain for anyone to use. (5:00)


"...a decision is expected by summer."
