Pardon my Latin:  You're going to need to look up "Stare decisis et non
quieta movere."  Please note that it has little or no application in US 
civil law, which would apply in copyright cases.  (At least I hope so; 
e.g., a murder trial based in copyright law sounds like one of the plots
Corey Doctorow left on the floor.)
