Supreme Court Asks Feds To Chime In On Decade-Old "Dancing Baby" YouTube Case

Does anyone know how or why this case is still going? Anyone with a brain knows that going after this lady and her dancing baby video was just wrong. The fact that this has been dragging on for a decade and has gone all the way to the Supreme Court is truly astounding.

Lenz’s stance is that anyone who viewed the video would have seen there was no commercial intent and that it was a clear instance of a protected fair use. She, now with the support of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, sued Universal Music in July 2007, alleging that the publisher had not considered the possibility that the short burst of music in the dancing baby video fell under the fair use umbrella.
