Collector's Item?

I had to shake my head when I read that some folks gathered at the California Supreme Court's San Francisco courthouse on Thursday were buying 10-15 copies of the Supreme Court's In re Marriages decision.

Didn't those folks know that the opinion was and is available free on the Web -- right here? Granted, the opinion is around 150 pages long -- including all of the concurring and dissenting opinions, and 10 pages of parties, attorneys, and amici curiae. Still, I hazard that one could print out 15 copies of that decision for less than $150.
