Orwell could have a case against Bush

"Lawyers for the estate of George Orwell have announced their intention to sue President Bush for plagiarism.

"'We have long believed that this administration has stolen much of its policy from Mr. Orwell's writings,' said attorney Will Bilyalotz. "Expressly, '1984' and 'Animal Farm.' In some cases, like the illegal surveillance of its own citizens, this administration has lifted the passages word for word from '1984.' Just changing the year doesn't protect the president from copyright laws.'"
