Why we need copyright reform, yet again

The New York MTA is now suing some blogger with an iPhone app, claiming railroad schedules are copyrighted.

Uh-huh.

MTA marketers and lawyers have demanded he sign a licensing agreement, claiming (among other things) without said agreement, the blogger, Chris Schoenfeld, might publish inaccurate information. This, of course, supposes the MTA is capable of publishing accurate information, something that is not immediately apparent.

What is wrong with these people?

Thanks to Slashdot.
