In reality they have limited resources so they have to pick and choose which cases they take. Would it be better for more cases to be brought because gun rights groups are jumping in to help or fewer because the ACLU is devoting more resources to 2nd amendment cases over less popular 5th amendment cases?

Mr wiki might be wrong on this one - It should have been death +50 (+20 bonus years after 1998). The 120 years is suppose to be time after creation for corporate owned IP. Since it was essentially published (not just created), it would only be 95 years, but since Dr. King wasn't a corporation, I'd guess it'd only be 70 years after his death. Not sure now that his Estate owns it if that turns it into a corporation copyright, but either way, the 120 years seems wrong.
