Before you just capitulate, consider making a case whether the land
"owner" has a legitimate right to occupy that land himself.
Ownership, ultimately is a social contract, especially here in America
where most of it was taken by force.  You can get decide to opt-out of
the contract (join #Occupy?) and make your case before the judge why
you can put this resource of America to better use than new commercial
L.A. bullshit.
