One of my property students send me the following email:

Dear Professor Czarnezki,
I heard an interesting piece on npr today regarding property rights. The Mardi Gras Indians are seeking to protect the profitability of their elaborate costuming, and "filing for copyright protection."

Best,

We just read INS v. AP, and Cheney Brothers v. Doris Silk in class, so the students are interested in cases about folks trying to protect the fruits of their labor.
