    re the Car of Neurath: You might be interested in Justin Hughes’ work on “Microworks” in copyright. IP owners want copyright not just in works, but in fragments of works.

    In “Long Black Veil” our protagonist goes to the gallows rather than answer the judge’s request for an alibi at his murder trial (he had been in the arms of his best friend’s wife, of course).
