The transcript from the Eldred oral argument of a couple
weeks ago is now online.  My own impression of it is that
our side did better than it sounded from the earlier reports
I'd read, including Lessig's own; the Court seemed to be a
lot harder on the Government's argument, and the
Government's representative seemed less able to put forward
a compelling presentation, than on our side.  However, it's
still much too early to declare victory, and as has been
noted elsewhere, the oral argument isn't exactly the most
important determining factor in a Supreme Court case
anyway.  They'll be deciding it based on the written stuff. 
Anyway, here's the link; see what you think.
