Federal prisoners seek to leverage intellectual property rights to obtain early release
What happens when four federal prisoners:
- Try to obtain copyrights on their own names,
- Demand that their warden stop violating their “copyright” by using their names on prison registers,
- Attempt to record liens against the prison warden’s property, seize the warden’s cars and change the locks on the warden’s house, and
- Demand that the warden release them from prison in exchange for a release of their “claims” against the warden?
