Re: [dvd-discuss] Eldred Transcript Online

Very interesting reading. The Justices were discussing the issue with 
Lessig, probing, exploring arguments, but with S.G. Olson, they were 
almost antagonistic....as in "OK what's the limit. GIVE ME A LIMIT. IF YOU 
CAN"T GIVE ME A LIMIT ONE DOES NOT EXIST" I think there is no question 
that they Supremes are leaning towards Lessig, the question is one of 
Judicial restraint and using the golden bullets.....

Note that, to the extent Aaron has inserted names of individual Justices, 
he is relying on his memory,  The official and thoroughly annoying 
of the Court is to not identify the specific Justice who is speaking.  The 

unmodified official transcript simply says "QUESTION: ...."
