Groklaw on Shakespeare's King Lear, which wasn't entirely his, and in this day and age would be regarded as criminal copyright infringement.
Does that mean Willy wasn't a genius? Why, no. It means today's copyright laws are nonsensical.
Groklaw also goes off a bit on Jammie Thomas, the woman ordered to pay $1.92 million because her young sons (probably) uploaded a couple of dozen songs to a sharing site. That's $80,000 per song, a pay out so unreasonable it's likely to be challenged on constitutional grounds.
