LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Hollywood may have some reason to be nervous about President Obama's nomination of Elena Kagan to be the next U.S. Supreme Court justice.
Not a whole lot is known about Kagan's judicial philosophy, which in some ways, makes her the perfect pick to win confirmation by the Senate. Her record on issues the industry cares about, though, isn't entirely opaque.
Hollywood's biggest worry about Kagan might be her philosophy on intellectual property matters. As dean of Harvard Law School from 2003 to 2009, she was instrumental in beefing up the school's Berkman Center for Internet & Society by recruiting Lawrence Lessig and others who take a strongly liberal position on "fair use" in copyright disputes.

The Citizens United case shows they better not make any conservative films...
oh right. They don’t.
They love alturnative lifestyles. She is perfect for Hollywood.
More conservatives need to go into the film industry. Go to a film school one of these days and see how many there are. I have and there aren’t many.
and who will hire them?
Anyone who is openly conservative will find it tough to get a good job in Hollyweird
Getting a film financed is a matter of pluck and hustle. Anyone can do it.
Also keep in mind that I said Film school and not drama school. Producers and directors create their own projects. Actors rely on others to do so.
“More conservatives need to go into the film industry.”
And spend your life working with THOSE aholes? Not likely.
Start a hobby. Turn that crap off. If we all did it, they would be back to what they were before Hollywood...vagrants and outcasts.
Artists have been around for millenia.
Besides the idea is absurd on its face. It’s like saying we shouldn’t be writers or musicians because of the presence of ahole writers and musicians.
Wrong.: "Whether a given category of speech enjoys First Amendment protection depends upon a categorical balancing of the value of the speech against its societal costs."
LOL, I would imagine Hollywood commies don’t generally care about private property rights, except when it concerns THEIR intellectual property!;)
And what about the non-commies?
“And what about the non-commies?”
Just pointing out the irony of a socialist discovering the importance of capitalism when his own interests are involved!;)
It’s hard to complain about anything when you have the Dems’ dick in your mouth...
“Artists have been around for millenia.”
True. Hollywood aholes like today’s crop of “actors” (with a few exceptions) are not artists, though, they are “celebrities.”
I live and work in Hollywood and am minutes away from the LA Film School on Sunset. Been inside, full of lib airheads.
The best film makers and craftsmen are aritsts.
Another fairy tale from the Progressive Vaudeville act.
