Great, block politics from your home page. This is not a tech news site, it is a news for nerds site. If you don't like politics, feel free to modify your preferences. This appointment could have very significant consequences on dozens of issues to be decided at the Supreme Court level. Many of those, no doubt, will be news for nerds as well.
Your point would make sense if it were at all true that the common description of the law had any legal weight outside of the actual text of the law and the applicable case law. That you can call something the "Was Being Bad" law doesn't mean that's what legal standard is applied by judge or jury. Presumably this description is applicable in New York:
A reasonable person may disagree with the law or it's exact wording (we are "free" to do so), but don't imply that the title of the law somehow proves a vague catch-all conspiracy.

Sadly this summary has no information at all, provides no description of the issue to be discussed, and provides no content other than links to other sources. Perhaps the submission could have contained:
- A description of the issue at hand
- A reason why an uninformed reader would care about patent royalties at 24-40 dollars (per what?)
- An explicit argument about why this is or is not a good thing
I have been a member of this website for years, and while I am as guilty of not reading the article(s) as the cliche suggest of most readers, I still do so if the summary has some, any, information as to why I should. This summary provides no context whatsoever to evaluate the article's worth nor describes in any way it's content.
Interesting, you've misinterpreted me I think. I'm not sure I said it was a rote task; I said it wasn't web design. I didn't intend to put web production people "below" anyone. They have a very specific skill, a valuable one, that isn't the same skill that web designers have.
In many roles and organizations these may very well be the same people. In my organization, they are typically not as it's hard to find people who are experts at both tasks. The designers produce Photoshop documents of the web page, the producers optimize, slice, and produce HTML and potentially some UI effects.
So while I agree that you could call them designers in some sense (the individuals I know who do this certainly are creative) that muddies the waters a bit when there are people who are Web Designers who don't do what they do. The value is in both roles, and some people, again, fill both roles. But they are nonetheless fundamentally different tasks.
