Point taken on property, but unlike other property where ownership is an inherent right, copyrights are granted by Congress to benefit society (talking about US here), and the terms of copyright are set by congress using powers laid out in the constitution. Would the Supremes interfere too much with this power?

If specific copyrights were wiped out using eminent domain, then I agree the owners would have to be confiscated.
