Nope. You won't.

Now that didn't take very long at all did it?
Amazing, it takes congress years and years to get some things done, but totally screwing up something only takes them a few days or less....
Actually, you may have stumbled on a post-modern flaw of the "checks and balances" that the framers never intended - pure malice in Congress.
(Trivia: Anyone know how long it took them to get the copyright terms extended as soon as Disney wailed about the Mouse?)
Sometimes troubling rulings pop up at the circuit levels - there's no sensible reason why a ruling from California should be different in the exact same case as one from Texas etc. So for this scenario, we got:
Circuit court: "Selling stuff violates copyright because of four cent piece of plastic from Hong Kong is in there."
Supreme Court: "No it doesn't. That isn't the law. Now stop making us do your job and gtfo."
(One of many congresscritters gets phone call/email from an Important Constituent from ... uh ... "registered in Delaware"...)
Congresscritter to press: "That didn't go my constituent's way, so sudo here's a new law that says it's the law now." (Total time to pass the law: One week.)
Supreme Court: "It will be a year before we get another case to go overturn your new law. We're going to go over here and throw up our hands now."
