Patry quote on TEACH Act

I ran across this Patry quote today that I enjoyed:

“[T]he drafting [of Section 110(2), the TEACH Act] is so ugly that it certainly supports the carbon-dating theory of amendments to the Copyright Act: the vintage of an amendment can be determined by its prolixity and resemblance to a poorly drafted contract, the more prolix and poorly drafted the more recent the amendment.”

Patry on Copyright, s. 14:35 (p.14-72)
