Look at this, I highlighted the key points:

(Compiled by Harvard Law School?)

No. 01-

IN THE
Supreme Court of the United States
Eric Eldred, et al. ,
Petitioner,
v.
John D. Ashcroft , In his official capacity
as Attorney General,
Respondent.
On Petition for a Writ of Certiorari to the
United States Court of Appeals for the
District of Columbia Circuit
petition for a writ of certiorari

Copyright and Patent Clause gives Congress the power:
To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times, to Authors and Inventors, the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries.

U.S. Const., art. I, § 8, cl. 8.

-----------------Eldred v Ashcroft-------------------------
Plaintiffs File Petition for Certiorari to Supreme Court


Frantz Mfg. Co. v. Phenix Mfg. Co., 457 F.2d 314, 327 n.48 (7th Cir. 1972) (emphasis added)(quoting Lee v. Runge,
404 U.S. 887, 890 (1971) (Douglas, J., dissenting from denial of certiorari)).

The Seventh Circuit, etc...

The court held, by “focus[ing] on how well the test promotes the primary objective of the Act. This objective is not to reward an author for her labors, but ‘to promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts.’” Erickson v. Trinity Theatre, 13 F.3d 1061, 1069 (7th Cir. 1994). See also J.L. Mott Iron Works v. Clow, 82 F. 316, 320 (7th Cir. 1897)
 (“Under the constitution, the power lodged with congress is not unlimited, but is restricted to the promotion of the progress of science and useful arts.”).

The Ninth Circuit, etc...

In Aalmuhammed v. Lee, 202 F.3d 1227, 1235 (9th Cir. 1999),
 “[t]he Constitution establishes the social policy that our construction of the statutory term ‘authors’ carries out. The Founding Fathers gave Congress the power to give authors copyrights in order ‘to promote the progress of Science and useful arts.’”

The Second Circuit,etc...

[the] purpose [‘to promote the Progress of Science’], ‘courts in passing upon particular claims of infringement must occasionally subordinate the copyright holder’s interest in a maximum financial return to the greater public interest in the development of art, science, and industry.’” Rosemont Enter. Inc. v. Random House, Inc., 366 F.2d 303, 307 (2d Cir. 1966)(citing Berlin v. E.C. Publs., 329 F.2d 541, 544 (2d Cir. 1964) (Kaufman, J.)).

I still have not found a 'Constitutional Amendment' stating that the 'Owner' ( Not Author) of a Copyrighted work should be protected, but they seem to be the only ones that are.

'Works' made for hire have a longer Protection than the creative works of the Authors and Inventors. Why is this? This promotes 'Big Business', not the Arts and Sciences. Infringement in my opinion, stems from this type of greed.

If a Corporation is Infringing instead of Inventing, how does this 'Promote Progress' when it makes it 'unsafe' for the Talented to use their skills.
