End of Database Fair Use?

Information database sellers are trying to pass new legislation to end fair use of database information-- seeking to reverse a Supreme Court decision that said copyright protections extends only to creative works, not merely the accumulation of facts.

For more on the legal background on the issue, you can read a more indepth paper I wrote a few years ago on the issue, Database Protection: Rewarding Sweat or Destroying Fair Use?
