Jot: The Copyright Defense

Copyright as legal obstruction:
A man has been attempting to use a novel defense - he copyrighted his name, and when government officials sent citations for traffic violations and property taxes, he claimed the government officials infringed upon his copyright.
Prosecutors were not deterred, cited an obscure law to counter the "copyright defense", and the man was sentenced to two years in jail.
