Federal prisoners seek to leverage intellectual property rights to obtain early release

What happens when four federal prisoners:

  • Try to obtain copyrights on their own names,
  • Demand that their warden stop violating their “copyright” by using their names on prison registers,
  • Attempt to record liens against the prison warden’s property, seize the warden’s cars and change the locks on the warden’s house, and
  • Demand that the warden release them from prison in exchange for a release of their “claims” against the warden?

QuizLaw has the details here. (Hint: it involves more prison time).
