Count Hatch among the Deadheads

SHARE Count Hatch among the Deadheads

At last week's Judiciary Committee hearing on Napster, Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., recalled that his "beloved Grateful Dead allowed anyone to tape their live shows and then trade tapes, without ever demanding a nickel for the rights," reports Roll Call.

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, didn't have anything to say about that precedent, but he wasn't going to let the Demos wear the sole Deadhead crown. "I like the Grateful Dead, too," he said, "but I'm not a slavish devotee."
