It's a quote from a real book (that I highly recommend people read):

http://www.free-culture.cc/freecontent/

referring to real legal cases from the US a hundred years ago in which
photography was argued to basically be "piracy":

" [31]: For illustrative cases, see, for example, /Pavesich v. N.E. Life
Ins. Co.,/ 50 S.E. 68 (Ga. 1905); /Foster-Milburn Co. v. Chinn,/ 123090
S.W. 364, 366 (Ky. 1909); /Corliss v. Walker,/ 64 F. 280 (Mass. Dist.
Ct. 1894)."
