Pope takes a lesson from the Scientologists

After fixing the link to Chris's blog, it was only natural to start reading it. This turned out to be a lucky break--check out this post. Looks like the Pope has taken a lesson from the Scientologists, and decided to copyright not only his own words, but to do so retroactively for every Pope for the past 50 years. Cute. I commented on Chris's blog:
What's potentially even more problematic about this than the money aspect of it is the potential for the Catholic Church to use their copyright to protect the Pope's words from criticism, similar to the way the Church of Scientology guards its most secret "teachings."

Plus, the idea of applying a copyright retroactively for the past 50 years is fairly worrysome.
