If we had to watch our magnum opus become the favorite book of innumerable numbers of prep-school poseurs who misunderstood our ironic distance, we might throw up our hands and move to a cabin in Vermont, too — but we probably wouldn't keep a copyright attorney on speed-dial. You can't yell "Get off my lawn!" at the neighbor who's taken it upon himself to mow it for you.
